Every month there is one Council meeting and there are two Standing Committee meetings:
- the Planning and Development Committee
- the Executive Committee
Members of the public who wish to speak to a Standing Committee and/or Council are called delegations.
In order to appear before Council, delegations are encouraged to have first appeared before a Standing Committee.
Delegations can speak for up to ten minutes. Afterwards, councillors may ask questions.
If the matter is a statutory planning matter, no formal registration is required for the Planning & Development Committee.
Persons who wish to speak to an item that is on a Standing Committee meeting agenda should register in writing by 12 noon on the day of the meeting.
