Information and Briefing Sessions

Information and briefing sessions are conducted by the CEO or senior staff members for Council and committee members, to enhance their understanding of key issues and ensure they are adequately informed for better decision making.

Information and briefing sessions provide a valuable opportunity for Council Members to become better informed on issues and seek further clarification in order to enhance their decision making process.

Sessions should not be used or be seen to be used as a replacement for full debate and decision-making at Council meetings or Council Committee meetings.

Open and transparent Council meetings and Council Committee meetings underpin representative democracy and ensure public confidence in Council's decision-making processes.
