Important Note Regarding Public Attendance at Council Meetings

Public Questions & Statements: Public Attendance meeting guidelines during the COVID-19 Disease Emergency

The conduct of Council Meetings is currently being undertaken in accordance with the COVID-19 Disease Emergency (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2020. This has necessarily meant that public attendance at meetings has been restricted. Under these arrangements Council meetings have been undertaken remotely via online platforms.

While COVID-19 restrictions remain in place, Council is mindful of the need to ensure community safety and compliance with regard to social distancing and limitations on the number of persons who may gather. This obligation is balanced with the need to minimise disruption to the business of Council.

Council has determined that limited public access to Council meetings will be permitted from the Council Meeting scheduled for 14 December 2020.

Attendance of the public will be restricted to those who wish to make representation or present a statement in person at the meeting, preference is to be given to individuals

  • making representations to planning applications which are subject to statutory timeframes (limit of 4 persons per item),

and

  • those making statements or representations on items listed in the Agenda for discussion (limited to 2 persons).

To ensure compliance with Council’s COVID-19 Safety Plan, any person wishing to attend will be required to register their interest to attend, which is to be received by Council before 12noon 4 days (i.e. usually the Friday) preceding the meeting by emailing council@nmc.tas.gov.au or phoning Council on 6397 7303.

On arrival attendees will:

  • be required to complete the health declaration section of their registration form to support COVID-19 tracing (in the event that it is necessary);

and

  • receive direction from council officers (or Council’s delegate) in relation to their access to the meeting room.

Access to the Municipal Building will only be permitted until 6.45pm, at which time Public Question Time will commence.

Members of the public who would prefer not to attend the meeting, but would like to ask a question or make a representation to the Council that would normally be heard during Public Question Time, may forward their question/representation to council@nmc.tas.gov.au which is to be received by Council before 12noon 4 days (i.e. usually the Friday) preceding the meeting. Any questions/representations received will be circulated to Councillors prior to the meeting, tabled at the meeting and recorded in the minutes of the meeting.

These arrangements are subject to review based on any change in circumstance relating to the COVID-19 Disease Emergency.

Council will continue to ensure minutes and audio recordings of Council meetings are available on Council’s website.
