About Council Meetings

Ordinary Council Meetings 

Unless otherwise resolved by Council, Singleton Council meets on the third Tuesday of every month immediately after the Public Forum at 5.30pm in the Council Chambers at Singleton Council, located at the corner of Civic Avenue and Queen Street, Singleton.

Council Meetings are the mechanism through which our elected Councillors make decisions regarding policies and programs of Council to meet the needs of the Singleton Community. Decisions of Council can only be made by resolution at a properly convened meeting.

Whilst not mandatory, members of the public attending Council’s meeting rooms are encouraged to wear a face mask.

Public Gallery

Anyone can attend a Council meeting and watch the proceedings from the Public Gallery. Members of the public cannot participate in the Council meeting, and must remain silent at all times.

Whilst not mandatory, members of the public attending Council’s meeting rooms are encouraged to wear a face mask.

Members of the public must remain within the designated area of the Public Gallery and are not permitted to occupy the space within the Council Chamber allocated for Councillors, representatives of the media or staff members. Members of the public are not permitted to approach a Councillor at any time during a Council Meeting.

Any act of disorder may result in expulsion from the meeting in accordance with the Code of Meeting Practice

Webcast

Council Meetings are webcast to the community live in real time. The quality of the webcast will depend on your PCs memory and internet connection bandwidth. Please be patient when loading a video as depending on your internet connection it can take time to start playing.

Public Forums

Public forums are held from 5.30pm in the Council Chambers at Singleton Council with the Council Meeting commencing immediately after. Council holds a public forum prior to each Council Meeting, if required, for the purpose of hearing oral submissions from members of the public on items of business to be considered at the meeting.

Public Forum is not part of the official Council Meeting and therefore not part of the Webcast.

The webcast commences with the Council Meeting at the completion of Public Forum. There may be a delay of up to one hour depending on the number of speakers and questions.
