Governance Rules for Council Meetings

Council is proposing to make changes to our Governance Rules related to how we conduct our meetings in-line with COVID-19-related amendments to the Local Government Act 2020.

These amendments to Part 12 of the Act would come into effect on 2 September 2022 and replace temporary COVID-19 measures and the COVID-19 Omnibus (Emergency Measures) Act 2020. They include provisions for whether a meeting should be held in person, online or hybrid options.

Our Governance Rules regulate how we hold meetings, record these meetings, the election of the Mayor and Deputy Mayor, and disclosures of conflict of interest and conduct of Council during the Election Period.

Council is seeking views from the community about the proposed changes. A four-week community consultation will run from Wednesday 20 July until 5pm on Wednesday 17 August. All submissions should be addressed to the Co-ordinator Councillor Business.
