Draft Code of Meeting Practice

The Model Code of Meeting Practice for Local Councils in NSW (Model Meeting Code) was prescribed on 14 December 2018. Councils are to adopt a new Code of Meeting Practice by 14 June 2019.

The Model Meeting Code applies to all meetings of councils and committees of councils of which all the members are councillors and comprises mandatory and non-mandatory provisions. Councils must adopt the mandatory provisions but can choose to include non-mandatory provisions of their own or from the Model Meeting Code.

Camden Council’s draft new Code of Meeting Practice incorporates all of the mandatory provisions (shown in black font) as well as selected non-mandatory provisions (shown in red font).

To assist in comparing Camden’s current Code of Meeting Practice to the Model Meeting Code and the draft new Code of Meeting Practice, corresponding clause numbers have been included in a table.

Under section 361 of the Local Government Act 1993, the draft Code will be on public exhibition until 5pm Tuesday 7 May 2019. Council must receive any submissions no later than Tuesday 21 May 2019.

Written submissions are welcome and can be forwarded to the Manager Governance and Risk, Camden Council, PO Box 183, Camden NSW 2570 or via email at council@camden.nsw.gov.au
