Council meetings

In accordance with the Local Government Act 1995, the City of Perth Council meets regularly to make decisions concerning the City of Perth. The decision-making meetings are Ordinary and Special Council Meetings where Councillors debate and vote on the matters contained within the agenda for that meeting. The decisions made at these meetings are implemented by the City’s Administration.

Council meetings are chaired by the Lord Mayor and are guided by the Standing Orders Local Law 2009, which details the requirements for meeting facilitation, order of business and adherence to statutory requirements.

City of Perth Ordinary Council Meetings are open to the public and commence at 5.00pm on the last Tuesday of the month, except the December Ordinary Council meeting which is held on the second Tuesday of the month. The meetings are held in the Council Chamber, Level 9, Council House, 27 St Georges Terrace, Perth.

The public is able to attend and ask questions during Public Question Time. When confidential information needs to be considered, parts of the meeting may be closed to the public.

Agenda Briefing Sessions

The purpose of Agenda Briefing Sessions is for Councillors to ask questions and obtain additional information in respect to items presented on the draft Ordinary Council Meeting agenda. Questions asked by Councillors are to be answered by the CEO or a person nominated by the CEO. No decisions are made at Agenda Briefing Sessions.

The Sessions are held at 5.00pm on the Tuesday prior to the Ordinary Council Meeting and are open to members of the public. Members of the public in attendance can make deputations on items of interest on the agenda. When confidential information needs to be considered, parts of the meeting may be closed to the public.
