Members of the public are able to address Council via Public Forum participation.
To participate, submit a Public Forum Application Form.
The form must be received by Council no later than 4.30pm two business days prior to the meeting. This will generally be on the Monday in the week of the Council meeting.
To ensure an equal opportunity for members of the public to apply to speak, the form will only be accepted for consideration after the relevant Council meeting agenda is published on Council’s website.
Members of the public may apply to speak on any one (1) item of business with the exception of visitor items. Presentations by members of the public are limited to five (5) minutes duration each and are restricted to one (1) speaker 'for' and one (1) speaker 'against' on an item of business with a maximum of four (4) speakers per meeting in total.
The General Manager or their delegate may refuse an application to speak at the Public Forum.
