Full Council

The Council is the main decision making body. Decisions of the Council are made through Full Council. All committees make recommendations to Full Council for determination. Informed decision making is critical to ensuring that decisions are made in the best interests of the wider community.

The Council meets at 7pm on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month except:

  • January when it meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month only; and
  • December when it meets on the second Tuesday only; and

Informed decision making is critical to ensuring that decisions are made in the best interests of the wider community.  Therefore, if an issue is considered to be significant and complex, the matter may be presented to Council more than once to ensure the community has the opportunity to engage with Elected Members prior to a decision being made.

The methods undertaken are:

  • The matter is presented to Council at a briefing prior to a report being considered at the Full Council meeting for decision.


  • An information paper which does not require a resolution, signalling the opportunity to suspend proceedings to enable presentations and discussion during a Full Council meeting, will be included on a Council Agenda prior to the item being presented to a Full Council meeting for a decision.
