Public Question Time at Council Meetings
You are able to attend a council meeting as a member of the public. All council meetings are open to the public, with the exception of when Council decides to close the meeting to the public in certain circumstances.
Public Question Time is a means by which the public can ask questions relating to council activities and seek responses from Council about issues affecting the community that are of concern to them. It provides Council with a mechanism to identify issues of importance in their community. Public question time provides an opportunity for people to ask questions about Council’s activities, not make statements.
A written question on notice can be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or via the form below. Questions on notice must be received no later than 7 days prior to the meeting date. Section 31 of the Local Government (Meeting Procedures) Regulations 2015 applies regarding public question time. The period of 7 days includes Saturdays, Sundays and statutory holidays but does not include the day on which notice is given or the day of the Ordinary Council meeting [Section 31(8)].
