Council meetings

Public forum trial

From August 2019, Council will be trialling a public forum before each Council meeting. Public forums are an opportunity for members of the public to address Council on matters of public importance that are not listed on the meeting agenda.

Public forums will be held from 6.30 pm to 6.45 pm before each Council meeting at Waverley Council Chambers. Council meetings are generally held on the third Tuesday of each month.

Members of the public are welcome to attend.

To speak at a public forum, you must register before 3.00 pm on the Monday before the Council meeting. Places are limited to four speakers per public forum, and each address must be no longer than three minutes.

In addition to speaking at a public forum, you will still be able to address Council on items on the meeting agenda (see below).

The trial of public forums will last until the end of 2019.

For more information, or to register to speak at a public forum, please click here or call 9083 8000.
