Council meeting dates are adopted each year by resolution of Council. Dates for the remainder of 2020 are as follows:
Tuesday, 18 August (previously scheduled for 11 August)
Tuesday, 15 September (previously scheduled for 6 October)
Tuesday, 20 October
Tuesday, 17 November
Tuesday, 1 December
Dates in brackets indicate changes made due to local government elections being postponed to 2021 due to COVID-19. The new dates were approved by Council on Tuesday, 23 June 2020. The Council report outlining the changes can be accessed here.
Generally, Council meets on the third Tuesday of the month (with the exception of January). However, there may be times when meetings will need to be rescheduled.
Meetings are held at the Canada Bay Civic Centre, 1A Marlborough Street, Drummoyne at 6pm, with the exception of Extraordinary Meetings, which may be held in an emergency.
The most recent Public Health Order allows for Councillors and staff to attend Council and Committee meetings in person. The option of participation by audio-visual link remains available to Councillors.
As the total number of people attending Council Meetings cannot exceed 20, members of the public cannot attend at this time. Whilst this means that public forum is currently not occurring in its usual format, members of the community are encouraged to place written submissions to Council Meetings (please see details below).
The public will be able to view a live stream of each meeting in the usual way, via live stream to our Facebook Page at 6pm the evening of the Council meeting.
Archived recordings of the meetings will continue to be made available on our Accessing Agendas/Minutes section below.
The Council has a Code of Meeting Practice which can be accessed here. Council also has a Remote Meeting Supplement to form part of its Code of Meeting Practice. This can be accessed here—it outlines methods of conducting remotely held online Council and Committee meetings.
Physical attendance at a Council meeting and addressing Council at the meeting is now suspended until further notice.
If you would like to put a written submission to Council, the item must be on the Agenda and you will need to submit your written submission via email CMsubmission@canadabay.nsw.gov.au by 5pm on the day before the meeting.
Council agendas are available on the Council’s website from the Thursday before each meeting.
Minutes are available once confirmed by Council.
