The Decision Making Structure of the Council
The full Council - the Mayor and ten Councillors - meet formally on the first Wednesdays of every month at 7.00 pm. A Development Assessment Panel (CDAP) meeting to consider Development Act applications submitted for approval is held on the second Wednesday of each month at 5.30 p.m. Audit Committee Meetings are held at least 4 times a year on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 4.00pm to discuss the financial issues of Council.
Every meeting of Council, the Audit Committee, and of the Development Assessment Panel is open to the public to attend. The Council, a Council committee or Development Assessment Panel may, however, order that the public be excluded from attendance at so much of a meeting as is necessary to receive, discuss or consider in confidence certain prescribed matters. Such matters include, for example, the consideration of legal advice, commercial in-confidence information, tenders for the supply of goods and services, personnel matters etc.
Council, Audit Committee, and Development Assessment Panel meeting agendas, together with the accompanying reports and correspondence, are placed on public display, at Council's three offices and on the Council's website, not less than three days prior to those meetings. Minutes of the meetings are placed on display for free public access within five days of each meeting.
