Council Meetings are held twice a month at 5.30pm. Meetings are held in the Council Chambers at Maitland Administration Centre, 263 High Street, Maitland.
An agenda is made available each Friday prior to Council meetings, listing all the items Council intends to consider at the meeting. It usually also contains Council officers' reports and recommendations on these matters. Councillors use these reports as a source of information and advice to help their decision making.
Meeting Minutes & Agendas
All Council Meetings are live streamed, giving the community access to what is discussed and decided at meetings in real time, without needing to attend in person. You can view the live stream for upcoming meetings, and copies from past meetings via Vimeo.
On rare occasions, Council holds extraordinary meetings. These meetings are held outside the normal meeting cycle and are typically to consider urgent matters.
All citizens are welcome to attend Council Meetings to address an item on the agenda. If you wish to speak at a Council meeting, you must lodge a Public Access Speaker Request Form.
Applications must be received by 12.00pm noon on the day of the Council Meeting.
