A Community Panel model has replaced the old community committee structure, which was disestablished at the end of Council's last triennium.
Council has established four community panels in the Northern, Central, Eastern and Western Hills ward communities. Each panel will consist of five community representatives along with two ward councillors.
The frequency and timings of community panel meetings will be at the discretion of each panel.
We are currently calling for expressions of interest from members of the public.
Applications close on 30 June 2017.

We facilitate three elected community boards. These groups meet every six weeks: all the meetings are open to the public, except for items considered under ‘public excluded’ business. At the start of each meeting we make time for public comment; anyone can speak for three minutes on any item that’s in the order papers.
We advertise the community meetings in advance: you can get order papers two working days before each meeting.
