Council may convene an Extraordinary Meeting outside these regular times, for which public notification will be provided on this website.
Mr Rik Hart is the Administrator for Central Coast Council, appointed by the NSW Government on 26 April 2021. The local government election for Central Coast Council will be held on 14 September 2024. Until this time, the Administrator acts as the Council, undertaking the functions previously performed by the Mayor and Councillors.
An agenda (business papers) is made available before each Council meeting that details the items to be discussed. Agendas are released as soon as practicable but within three business days of the meeting, and are available online here. Shortly after each meeting, the minutes are also published online.
Meetings are run in accordance with the Council's Code of Meeting Practice and Code of Conduct. Public Council meetings are also livestreamed so that you may access what is discussed without attending in person.
