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 Draft Code was been developed in line with the Model Code made under the Local Government Act 1993 and the Local Government (General) Regulation 2005. It sought to incorporate new mandatory provisions and some non-mandatory provisions of the Model Meeting Code as well as other supplementary provisions which are not inconsistent with the Model Code.
Consultation was undertaken to ascertain the community's views on the new Draft Code of Meeting Practice. Specifically, Council sought community feedback on the non-mandatory and supplementary provisions incorporated into the Draft Code in order to determine 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.
At the Ordinary Council Meeting of Monday, 20 May 2019 Council considered an Amended Draft Code of Meeting Practice which was adopted subject to further amendments.
18 March 2019 - Draft Code of Meeting Practice endorsed by Council for public exhibition
21 March to 9 May 2019 - Exhibition period for community submissions
May 2019 - Evaluation of submissions received during exhibition period. Amendments incorporated into the Draft Code of Meeting Practice as required.
