  • Draft Code of Meeting Practice 2022

    Draft Code of Meeting Practice Policy

    Council wishes to advise that copies of Council’s Draft Code of Meeting Practice Policy will be on public exhibition until 4.00 pm Thursday, 27th October 2022. Public submissions will be received for consideration until 4.00 pm Thursday, 10th November 2022.

     

    The Draft Code of Meeting Practice was developed using the Model Code of Meeting Practice for Local Councils in NSW 2021 (the Model Meeting Code) which is prescribed under section 360 of the Local Government Act 1993 (the Act) and the Local Government (General) Regulation 2021 (the Regulation). 

     

    The Code of Meeting Practice applies to all Meetings of Council and Committees of Council. Council Committees whose Members include persons other than Councillors shall also use the same Code of Meeting Practice for Meetings. 

     

    Major changes include an Acknowledgement of Country read by the Chair prior to each Council Meeting, the ability to conduct meetings by audio-visual link in circumstances like health crises or natural disasters like floods. Council will also arrange a Welcome to Country by an invited Aboriginal Elder at the first Council Meeting of each new Council term.

     

    Copies of the Draft Code of Meeting Practice Policy are available at the following locations:

    Administration Centre – 115 Dubbo Street, Warren;

    Warren Shire Library – 69 Dubbo Street, Warren; and

    Council’s Website - https://www.warren.nsw.gov.au/council/public-exhibition
