On the 12 March 2018 Council resolved to adopt a revised Committee Structure effective from April 2018. The Corporate & Works Committee (C&W), Community & Environment (C&E) and Urban Planning (UP) Committee delegations have been rescinded and no further meetings of Committees or Council will be held in March 2018.
Under the new Committee Structure, the responsibilities of C&W, C&E and UP Committees have been split into two (2) new Committees being:
The meeting cycle will see the two new Committees meeting concurrently on the 1st Monday of the month and one Council Meeting held on the 3rd Monday of the month.
The first meeting of the FCS and EP Committees will be held on Monday 9 April 2018 and the next full Council meeting held on the Monday 23 April 2018.
The meeting cycle will then resume back to the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month. All meetings will start at 6pm.
Further information on each of the Committee membership and meeting procedures will be available soon.
There are five formal committees of Council that meet regularly to discuss a range of issues, applications and proposals. All committee meetings are open to the public. Committees are as follows:
The C&E Committee considers issues relating to services for people and our local environment.
The C&W Committee considers financial, budget and works issues.
The DCC assesses and determines development applications which involve a broad or locality wide interest.
The S&C Committee deals with issues that have an impact on the whole of Council.
The UP Committee considers design and strategic planning issues that affect the municipality.
Council also convenes meetings of the Woollahra Local Traffic Committee (LTC):
The LTC is a technical advisory committee which operates under delegation from the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS). It is chaired by Council and Council is a voting member, the others being the RMS, the Police, and the Local Member(s).
The LTC from time to time also meets as the Local Development Committee to consider traffic impacts of proposed developments on main roads.
