Council meetings

The ordinary meetings of Central Coast Council are generally held on the second and fourth Monday evening of the month. 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.

During the period of Administration Council Meetings will be held on Tuesday evenings.

The interim Administrator makes 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 Agenda Papers. Shortly after each meeting, the Minutes are also published on this website. 

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 is the Council Chambers at 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.

Council’s Ordinary Meeting of 29 June 2021 will commence at 6.30pm as scheduled. However, in line with Public Health Order Central Coast is subject to a 'stay at home' order and this meeting will be conducted online.
