Admission of the Public

Most debates take place in public. This only changes when there is a need to consider certain issues, for instance, commercially sensitive information or details concerning an individual. You will be told at this point whether there are any items on the Agenda which are to be discussed in private.



The Committee will receive any petitions and hear any deputations from members of the public.


A deputation is where up to five people can attend the meeting and make a presentation on a particular issue of concern, subject to the provisions of Council Procedure Rule 10.  All deputations should be submitted at least 24 hours prior to the meeting.


A member of the public can also hand in a petition at the meeting, but that petition should relate to something on which the body has powers and responsibilities.
