Informal Gatherings Register

Informal Gatherings

Sections 90(8) and (8a) of the Local Government Act 1999 enable Council to lawfully hold designated informal gatherings of Council or a Council Committee, provided that :

  • Any matters discussed relating to a matter which would normally form part of an agenda for a formal Council or Committee meeting are dealt with in such a way that the matter is discussed but a decision is not reached.
  • The Council has adopted a policy on the holding of designated informal gatherings and discussions and all informal gatherings are held in accordance with the policy.

Designated informal gatherings enable Councillors to discuss issues among themselves and gain a better understanding of complex matters on which they will be required to reach a decision at a full meeting of Council.

The Informal Gatherings Register appearing below details the Informal Gatherings held by Council.

All Informal Gatherings are held in the Council Chambers Civic and Community Centre, 66 Walkerville Terrace Gilberton SA 5081 unless stated otherwise*.
