Decisions Released from Confidential Sessions

Home / About Council / Council & Committees / Decisions Released from Confidential Sessions

Decision-making at Council meetings is a democratic process which results in a majority vote of Elected Members and, from time to time, the public may be excluded from confidential parts of Council proceedings at Council meetings, which result in confidential decisions.

To ensure transparency in accordance with the Local Government Act 2019, Council conducts reviews of its confidential decisions to assess whether those decisions are able to be made publicly available.
