Council and Committee Meetings are held on a regular basis at Strathfield Council. See the full 2017 Council meeting schedule here.
Council Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of the month, 6:30pm, Council Chambers, 65 Homebush Road, Strathfield.
Business papers, minutes and agendas are available below for 2017 meetings, with past meetings available at the bottom link.
Council Meetings are open to the public, except for discussion of legal, staff or other confidential matters. Members of the public can make requests to speak at meetings. For more information on this, please see Council Meeting procedures.
Before each Council or Committee meeting, a Business Paper is prepared detailing the items that are to be presented to the meeting. Business papers include an agenda (list of items to be considered at the meeting), reports (details of items to be considered by Council) and minutes (details of decisions made at previous Council and Committee meetings).
Readers should be aware that the Recommendations as set out in the Business Papers are simply proposals to the Council for its consideration. The Council may adopt these proposals, amend the proposals, determine a completely different course of action, or it may decline to pursue any course of action. The decision of the Council becomes a resolution of the Council and is recorded in the Minutes.
Ordinary meetings of Council are held on the first Tuesday of the month, except during January. Business papers for the Council meetings are published on the Council website on the Thursday prior to the Tuesday meeting. Copies may be viewed on a computer at Council’s libraries and copies of the report will be printed upon request.
Minutes of the Council Meetings are placed on Council’s website within five working days of the meeting. For further information on Council and Committee meeting agendas, minutes or business papers please contact Council’s Governance department on 9748 9999.
