About Council and Committee Meetings

Council Meetings

Some items that appear on a Council agenda may not be debated and will be determined via a single ‘en bloc’ resolution of Council. Items to be debated will generally be identified prior to the meeting via a notification from Councillors and are listed on the Items for Debate page.

Supplementary Items can be included in a Council Meeting agenda up to 72 hours before a meeting.

Immediately preceding Council Meetings, the Agenda Briefing Sessions are held. Commencing at 5pm, Agenda Briefing Sessions are open to the public, and provide the opportunity to see what questions Councillors have on a current agenda item prior to its formal consideration at the Council Meeting. 

Information on Council Meeting processes and procedures, and Agenda Briefing Sessions are available by contacting Jo Barrett-Lennard on 08 9781 0338 or Jo.BarrettLennard@busselton.wa.gov.au 

For information on Community Access Sessions please visit our Interacting with Your Councillors page
