Any member of the public can address Councillors on agenda items for each Council meeting. We refer to this as speaking in the Public Forum.
Public forums are held each month at 5pm on the Monday prior to the council meeting. Should the public forum fall on a public holiday, the public forum will be conducted the following Tuesday.
To speak in the public forum, complete our online form to request to speak. All requests must be submitted by 9am on the day of the Public Forum.
Ensure you read the request to speak conditions and information for speakers below.
The following will not be accepted to be addressed in the public forum (in accordance with the Code of Meeting Practice, clause 4.21):
Our Council meetings are held once a month, often on the third Thursday of the month and begin at 3.00pm.
Our public forums are held on the third Monday of the month and commence at 5.00pm.
