Draft Code of Meeting Practice 2019

Consultation is now open


At the Ordinary Council Meeting on 18 March 2019, Council resolved to consult with the community in relation to a new Draft Code of Meeting Practice.

The Code has been developed in line with the Model Code made under the Local Government Act 1993 and the Local Government (General) Regulation 2005.

The Code of Meeting Practice seeks to incorporate new mandatory provisions and some non-mandatory provisions of the Model Meeting Code as well as any other supplementary provisions, provided they are not inconsistent with the Model Code.

This consultation aims to ascertain the community's views on the new Draft Code of Meeting Practice. Specifically, Council is seeking community feedback on the non-mandatory and supplementary provisions incorporated into the Draft Code in order to ascertain the level of support for these provisions and evaluate whether any amendments are required prior to the adoption of the Draft Code by June 2019.

You can have your say by making a submission to the Manager – Governance by post: Lane Cove Council, PO Box 20, Lane Cove 1595 or email:
