Council Meetings

COVID-19 UPDATE

There is currently no public gallery facility at the Council Meeting  as a precaution to help reduce the risk of Covid-19 infection.

People will be able to view Council Meetings online via Vimeo.

The NSW Parliament has passed the COVID-19 Legislation Amendment (Emergency Measures) Bill 2020 comprising a broad range of amendments to existing laws to help combat the spread of the virus. The Bill amends the Local Government Act to allow councils to hold official meetings electronically instead of physically.

Under previous legislation, councillors had to be physically present at meetings and residents allowed to attend in person to watch them deliberate and make important decisions on behalf of the community. For the next six months, these attendance requirements will be satisfied by council meetings being held remotely using an audio visual link.
