Where possible, Councillors and staff will join remotely from their homes or other Council facilities, in order to comply with NSW Health’s recommendations for social distancing and self-isolation.Public viewing of Council Meetings (including Ordinary Meetings and Committees) is only possible via live stream, the link is available on Council’s website.

Need help to access the live or archived meetings, or Council meeting agendas and decisions? Contact Council’s Governance Unit on 4429 3111. 

To request a deputation:The way we facilitate deputations has changed during this period.  Following these simple steps will assist you in being able to have your point of view considered. 

First, review the report and recommendations so you can advise whether you are making a deputation ‘for’ or ‘against’ the report recommendations. To find the item number and report name, link to Shoalhaven City Council’s Agendas & Minutes page.

Then secondly submit an application to make a deputation via the on-line application form Requests for deputations must be approved by the Chairperson of the meeting. Only one speaker for and against can address a meeting except in extenuating circumstances.  Concerned residents are encouraged to appoint one speaker/representative to address the meeting on behalf of their group.

Thirdly, approved Deputations need to be submitted as a video (maximum length 5 minutes) and sent to allgovernance@shoalhaven.nsw.gov.au prior to 12.00pm on the day of the meeting. Alternatively, a written submission can be provided by email to allgovernance@shoalhaven.nsw.gov.au, this will be provided to all the Councillors.
