Public Participation

The public can participate in and contribute to the decision-making process with Council in the following ways:

Public Question Time

At each Council meeting, 15 minutes is made available for public question time. So we can provide a full response to your question, complete and submit a public question time form.

Deputations and Submissions

Deputations and submissions give you the opportunity to express your views, or the view of a group of people or organisation, on an item or proposal that is listed on the agenda. To make a deputation or submission, a formal request must be made in writing to the CEO or President.  The deadline for the deputation or submission is seven days prior to the Council meeting.

Public statements allow you to put forward your views on a matter that is not listed on the agenda. To make a public statement, a formal request must be made in writing to the CEO or President.  The deadline for the public statement is seven days prior to the Council meeting.

Petitions are formal written requests of Council, signed by more than 4 people. When received, we will arrange for an Elected Member to present the petition to Council.
