Council Meetings and Public Forums

Ku-ring-gai Council Meetings are changing

From July 2019 there are a number of key changes to how Ku-ring-gai Council will be conducting Council Meetings. These changes are required by the NSW Government and are outlined in detail in the Council's new Code of Meeting Practice which was adopted by Council in June 2019.

The main changes are:

  • From July 2019, Ku-ring-gai Council will meet monthly on Tuesdays from 7pm. Tuesday 23 July is the first meeting in the new cycle.
  • Also from July, a monthly Public Forum will be introduced. The forum gives the public the opportunity to speak on Council meeting agenda items, or any other matters in the public interest. Tuesday 16 July is the first Public Forum in the new cycle.
  • Agendas for the monthly Council Meetings are publicly available from the Wednesday preceding the Public Forum. For the Tuesday 16 July Public Forum, the agenda and Business Paper will be publicly available from Wednesday 10 July.

  • Public Forums will take place from 6pm on the Tuesday preceding the monthly Council Meeting. To speak at a Public Forum, you must pre-register by 5pm the day before.

  • Monthly Council Meetings will remain open to the public, without the option to speak. The Public Forum will replace speakers at Council Meetings, consistent with the new Model Code of Meeting Practice introduced by the NSW Office of Local Government.


Council Meetings and Public Forums are held in the Council Chambers, Level 3, 818 Pacific Highway, Gordon.

Parking is available behind Council Chambers off Dumaresq Street.
