Changes to Committee Structure

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& Works Committee (C&W), Community & Environment (C&E) and Urban Planning (UP) Committee delegations have been rescinded and no further meetings of Committees or Council will be held in March 2018.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:

  1. Finance, Community & Services Committee (FCS)
    The Community Services functions of C&E have been combined with C&W to form the new FCS Committee.
  2. Environmental Planning Committee (EP)
    The Environmental Planning functions of current C&E have been combined with UP to form new EP Committee.

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.
