What is the code and its purpose?

The Code of Meeting Practice sets out the manner in which meetings of the Council and committees of Council are to be convened and conducted.

The Code includes all the provisions of the Local Government Act and Local Government (General) Regulation which relate to Council and Committee meeting procedures. It also incorporates the Policies and Safeguards of Council which relate to meeting procedures. The Policies and Safeguards have been developed by Council over many years to complement the legislative requirements to enhance the transparent and democratic decision making process and provide opportunities for public participation.
