Canterbury Bankstown Local Planning Panel (CBLPP) meeting 6 April 2020 and all future (CBLPP) meetings

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Canterbury Bankstown Local Planning Pane​l (CBLPP) meeting on 6 April 2020 and all future meetings until further notice, there will be no public gallery for the meeting. ​The meetings will be held remotely (electronically).

​​Under the Local Government Act 1993 (The Act), Council is charged with the administration of our Local Government Area (LGA). Accordingly, Council must conduct its business and decision-making in formal Council and committee meetings. 

As a general legislative requirement, all Council meetings must be open to the public. However, recognising the need for confidentiality in specified circumstances, Council can exclude the public and the press, provided the legislative requirements are met. 

The Act determines issues such as the minimum number of Council meetings that must be held during the year, what constitutes a quorum, when notices of meetings must be given, the roles of various participants, that is, the Mayor, Councillors and the General Manager, along with restrictions and requirements that might impact on each of the roles. 

Council has adopted a Code of Meeting Practice that complies with the Local Government (Meetings) Regulations 2005. This code contains the rules and regulations on how Council meetings should be conducted and details issues and procedures for matters such as motions, amendments and the general conduct of speeches. 

Code of Me​eting Practice

All Council meetings commence at 6pm sharp and close by 10.30pm, with only one extension to 11pm permitted, if so resolved by Council. Any unfinished business will be referred to the next available Ordinary Meeting. The minutes of any Council meeting are considered to be draft until they are confirmed at a subsequent meeting.​

Shuttle bus service

Council operates a free shuttle bus service for residents to attend Council's Ordinary Meeting. This service departs from the rear carpark of the Campsie Administration Centre at 5.00pm and will return registered residents to Campsie Administration Centre at the conclusion of the meeting.Read additional information about the free shuttle bus service..
