Committees and Advisory Groups

We are currently experiencing an unprecedented emergency with COVID-19  and the health and wellbeing of our community, staff and Councillors is of the utmost importance to us during this time.

At the Special Council Meeting held 23 March 2020, Council resolved to defer the appointment of community members to advisory groups at this time.

We will provide an update as soon as we are able to, in order to progress appointments to Advisory Groups.
