Community Participation at CDDC Meetings

Attendance at Meetings

The Victorian Government continues to recommend that we maintain a minimum 1.5m distance between each other where possible. Due to this, the public gallery in the Council Chamber is strictly limited to a maximum of 10 persons.

To ensure the maximum of 10 members of the public in the gallery is not exceeded, members of the public must pre-register their attendance at the meeting.

Registration for meetings opens the Friday prior to the meeting taking place. 

Requests to Address the CDDC

Community members can speak about an item on the meeting agenda for up to three minutes per speaker before the CDDC considers the item.

Where more than 10 requests to speak are received, a spokesperson will be required to be appointed by the group, and that spokesperson will be allocated a maximum of five minutes to address the CDDC.

If you would like to speak at a CDDC Meeting in relation to an item on the agenda, please complete the Request to Address the Delegated Committee online form.

All Requests to Address the Committee will be run remotely via Zoom, until further notice.
