Council meetings are held monthly. Meetings and workshops are open to the public unless there is reason to consider some items “public excluded”.

All Council meetings and workshops will be live-streamed to Council’s YouTube channel

Council workshops are open for the public to attend, but there will not be a public forum or opportunity for the public to address Council.

The Council Meeting Schedule can be viewed below. All meetings will commence at 3:30pm unless otherwise stated.

You can meet our Mayor, on a first come, first seen basis, during one of the regular Monday Mayor chats at the Clocktower Chambers, 9am - 12pm. Drop-in days in Reefton and Karamea are also available.
