Participate in a Council meeting

You can participate at a Council meeting in the Public Participation section, if you want to ask a brief question or make a statement related to our role, functions or business.

COVID-19 — measures

Whether the Public Participation section of a Council meeting will be able to be held will be determined on a meeting by meeting basis in accordance with either DHHS advice or Part 12 – ‘COVID-19 temporary measures’ of the Local Government Act 2020. Please refer to the meeting agenda page for further information.

For Council meetings held virtually, online participation is available. Please read the online public participation guidelines and register below.

It is our intention to permit 15 minutes for public participation. This allows members of the community to address Council, either making a statement or asking a question. In accordance with section 30 of the Governance Rules (PDF, 569KB), this is at the discretion, and under the direction of the Chairperson.

The personal information requested on this form is required under the Glen Eira City Council – Council Governance Rules (Governance Rules) and the Council guidelines ‘Public Participation’ (Guidelines). 

If you do not provide the personal information your question will not meet the requirements of the Governance Rules or Guidelines and Council will not consider it or answer it as a public question. 

Public questions, by their nature, are a public and transparent means of making enquiries of Council. Council is obliged under the Local Government Act 2020 (Vic) to prepare public minutes of each Council meeting which accurately reflect the business and proceedings of each meeting. Additionally the Guidelines require public questions which are read at a meeting, and the answers given, to be recorded in the minutes of that meeting.
