Asking a Question at a Meeting

The City encourages public participation in its decision making process. Public Question Time is a dedicated part of each Council meeting for members of the public to ask questions.  Submitting your question ahead of time allows the City to more readily respond to your question.  A Public Question Time form can be found here. Questions may also be taken on notice.

Presentations by Parties With An Interest

If there is a matter on the Council agenda that directly affects you, you can address Council during the meeting. Applications, landowners, neighbours of affected properties, representatives of relevant community organisations or other stakeholders may all be eligible to speak.

Information on matters being considered at Council meetings is included in the agenda of each meeting.
