Advisory Committees

COVID-19 Response

The safety of our communities, customers and employees is our top priority.  As such, on 28 April 2020, Council adopted an amended meeting schedule for the period May to September 2020 which includes Advisory Committees being able to meet (Quarterly as scheduled and if determined necessary by the Chair and Facilitator). The location of all meetings will be determined by the CEO in consultation with the Lord Mayor, having regard to all relevant public health orders, and will be either via audio-visual platform or at an appropriate CN facility in accordance with the requirements of the Local Government Act 1993.  We appreciate your ongoing support at this time.
