Pre-meeting Briefing Sessions
Pre-meeting Briefing Sessions will be held as scheduled to brief councillors on business to be considered at future meetings and any other items of importance. Pre-meeting Briefing Sessions will have an agenda and are open to the public (except for items that meet the requirements of section 10A of the Act).
Members of the public have the opportunity to address the Council prior to Ordinary and Extraordinary Council meetings. The forum allows for verbal submissions/presentations from community members on items of business to be considered at the meeting. Conditions are outlined in AlburyCity's Code of Meeting Practice.
To apply to make a presentation at a public forum, please complete our Application to present to Council (Public or Community Forum) Online Form. Applications must be received by 12:00 pm on the day of the meeting at which you wish to present.
Community Forums will be held as scheduled in order to provide the community with an opportunity to address councillors on items of significant community interest. Details regarding Community Forums are outlined in AlburyCity's Code of Meeting Practice.
There are occasions when Council needs to discuss items of a confidential nature. The reason for confidentiality is included in the agenda and summarised prior to discussion.
Under the Local Government Act 1993, if the Council moves into “closed” session, due to confidentiality, all members of the gallery including media must leave the Chamber.
Pre-meeting Briefing Sessions are also regularly held and these are open to the public, with the exception of “closed” sessions when confidential items are listed.
Under clause 14.9 of the Code of Meeting Practice, members of the public can make a submission in writing outlining the reasons why they believe the meeting should remain open to the public and not closed.
The Resolutions Register provides a search tool for Council Meeting Resolutions, with links to relevant Agendas and Minutes. Please note the Resolutions Register is only active from 1 September 2012.
Register of Development Applications Determined by Council
Council is required to maintain a register for each planning decision made at a meeting of the Council. The names of the Councillors who supported the decision and the names of Councillors who opposed (or who are taken to have opposed) the decision.
This register only relates to Development Applications referred to the Council, not those determined by Council Officers.
The register also includes details of any political disclosures made in relation to the development applications submitted to Council, except for declarations made by Councillors, where these disclosures are registered with the Electoral Commission NSW.
