Council meetings

Our 15 Councillors make decisions on behalf of the community at Council Meetings. Before each meeting, an agenda for the meeting is available with the detailed background information in the Business Papers. Shortly after each meeting, the Minutes are also published on this website. 

The ordinary meetings of Central Coast Council are generally held fortnightly on Monday evenings. From time to time Council may convene an Extraordinary Meeting outside these regular times and public notification will be given of any of these meetings.

Meetings are run in accordance with the Council's PDF icon Code of Meeting Practice and PDF icon Code of Conduct.

The location of the meetings generally alternate between the Council Chambers at Gosford and Wyong.  Any changes to location are listed below.

Public Council Meetings are also streamed live so that you can access what is discussed without attending in person.

Attending Council Meetings

Council Meetings are an opportunity to observe the Council decision making process. While Council Meetings are open to the public, they are not public meetings.

To attend a Public Forum and/or Council Meeting, residents must sign-in. Only pre-registered and approved speakers can speak at Public Forum.

Sign-in will be open from 4pm, in person on the day of the meeting at the scheduled Council Meeting chambers. No online or phone registrations are permitted.

Once capacity is reached, the public gallery space will be closed.
