Presenting at Public Access
To present at Public Access, you will need to:
- register by 12pm on the business day prior. If the Monday before Public Access is a public holiday, you will need to register by 12pm on the Friday before the briefing session.
- provide a written copy of your presentation to Council by 12pm the business day before the session. Your presentation will be published on Council's website after the session.
- limit your presentation to seven minutes.
- turn off your mobile phone and pagers during your presentation.
- resist from making personal or derogatory comments during your presentation.
One hour will be allocated to Public Access. If there are more speakers registered than time permits, Council could resolve to extend Public Access for 15 minutes. Any speakers who have not presented due to time constraints will be scheduled first on the list for the next available session.
Councillors, staff and members of the public are bound by the Code of Meeting Practice and must show mutual respect for one another. More information on how Public Access is facilitated is in Council's Code of Meeting Practice:
