Submissions and documents relating to reports on the business paper will be considered if received at Council by 5pm on working day before the meeting (normally the Friday before the Monday meeting). Submissions will be assessed and considered by staff and included in an addendum to the Report which will be available no later than 2pm on the day of the meeting (normally Monday).
Dependent on the circumstances, deferral of the matter may be recommended or an authoritative response given. The addendum will appear on Council's website after 2pm on the day of the meeting and be made publicly available at the meeting by inclusion in the folder of reports located outside the Council Chamber. No written submissions or documentation may be presented at the Council meeting.
Notwithstanding this, written submissions or documentation may be received by resolution of Council. Submissions on documents on public exhibition (such as draft planning instruments) will not be considered or presented to Council after the closing of the exhibition period.
