Attending in person
Please indicate on the 'request to speak' form if you are attending the meeting virtually rather than in-person.
Conditions of entry
There are COVID-safe requirements you will need to follow to keep everyone safe. Do not attend a Council meeting if you are feeling unwell or are waiting for the results of a COVID-19 test.
When entering the town hall and Council Chamber:
- Utilise the hand sanitiser provided upon entry to the building.

Council Meetings will continue to be conducted through a Hybrid method. If not attending in person, members of the public can join the WebEx meeting virtually and ask their questions live during the meeting. The WebEx meeting can be joined via internet connection on any device, or dialled into via phone. For privacy reasons, only audio will be heard, the video will not be displayed at any time during the meeting.
Watching Council Meetings from home
Council meetings continue to be live-streamed to allow our community to watch the meeting online. Members of the public can access the live-stream via our live stream website or Facebook page.
Please note, each speaker can speak for three minutes, the chair reserves the right to limit the speaking time to two minutes for a particular item if there are five or more speakers, please bear this in mind when preparing your submission.
