Ordinary meetings of Central Coast Council are generally held at 6.30pm on the fourth Tuesday evening of the month, in accordance with the revised Code of Meeting Practice adopted at the 22 February 2022 Ordinary Council Meeting. If requests to speak are received for the Public Forum, a Public Forum will be held at 5.45pm prior to the Council meeting. Council may convene an Extraordinary Meeting outside these regular times, for which public notification will be provided on this website.
During the period of Administration, the Administrator makes decisions on behalf of the community at Council Meetings. 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.
The location of Council meetings is the Council Chambers at Wyong Administration Building, 2 Hely Street Wyong. Information about upcoming meetings is further detailed below.
