Open and transparent meetings of Council underpin representative democracy and ensure public confidence in Council’s decision-making processes.

Informal gatherings, where appropriate, provide a valuable opportunity to enhance the decision-making processes by providing opportunities for Council members to become better informed on issues and seek further clarification.

Pursuant to the Local Government (Accountability and Governance) Amendment Act 2015 Council is required to adopt an Informal Gatherings Policy.

Informal gatherings will be used solely for the purpose of generating ideas, sharing information and seeking further information on issues.

Staff may receive guidance from informal gatherings as to what topics and information is to be presented to formal meetings but informal gatherings are not to be used for building consensus positions, or making Council decisions in any way.
