Council Meetings are open for members of the public to attend. Alternatively you can attend our meetings via webcast.

Attending a Council Meeting

Members of the public are welcome to attend the open sections of Ordinary Council Meetings. Capacity for the Chamber and function space is a maximum of 120 members of the public. However, a Council or Committee meeting may be closed while confidential business (under the Local Government regulations) is being considered. The confidential section follows the open section of the meeting.

Members of the public attending the open sections of Councils meetings must adhere to the Conditions of Entry before entering in Councils meetings areas, on and off Council premises.

Visitors and guests are required to sign the visitors log and provide photo identification to the Authorised officer.

Conditions of Entry to Council Chambers Public Gallery


We live webcast the Open Section of Ordinary Council meetings to enable greater community access and involvement in Council business. Webcasting provides the opportunity for our community to view proceedings without the need to attend, and also raises community understanding of the decision making process in Council.

Confidential sessions of Council Meetings will not be broadcast.

How to Attend via Webcast

​The Council Meeting will be webcast via CISCO, and the details will be posted on the front page of the agenda.
