Our monthly Council meetings are formal decision-making forums, where key policies, services and important issues for Sutherland Shire are reviewed and resolved. The community is welcome to attend and can also register to address Council at a Public Forum, held at each ordinary meeting.

Council business papers and minutes are published on our website. We also publish a summary of decisions taken on Facebook.

Council Business Papers

Business papers include Council meeting agendas, reports and minutes.

Council agendas are a list of matters to be discussed at a meeting.

Council reports present items and staff recommendations for consideration.

Council minutes confirm the decisions taken for each item.

Members of the public can attend Council and committee meetings in the public gallery. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Meetings may also broadcast to the Customer Service Foyer on the ground floor of the Administration Building.
