Council Meetings

About Council Meetings

The Council operates a monthly meeting cycle, which generally involves two meetings per month of the full Council and the City Planning Committee, together with one meeting each month of the other Council committees.

Council meetings are open to the public who are welcome to sit in the public gallery. Copies of agendas for all open meetings are available either at the meeting or prior to the meeting from the Town Hall reception, located at the Hobart Town Hall via the Macquarie Street entrance. 

Where possible, and in accordance with the requirements of the Local Government (Meeting Procedures) Regulations 2015, agendas are made available to the public 4 days (or in the case of special meetings, 2 days) prior to the respective meeting dates.

Minutes of meetings are available once they have been endorsed and signed at the next ordinary meeting. 

The Council is progressively ensuring better access and services for people with disabilities at its meetings.  Should you require an Auslan interpretation service at a meeting, this can be arranged upon request. Notice is required in advance of the meeting and the service is subject to interpreter availability. To discuss this service please contact the Manager City Government, Margaret Johns on 6238 2720.

The City is now live-streaming Council meetings. To listen, visit the Council Meeting live recordings webpage

Meetings are scheduled to commence at 5.00 pm and are held in the Council Chamber of the Hobart Town Hall with entry available via the Macquarie Street entrance. Limited copies of the meeting agenda are available at the meeting.

In accordance with the Local Government (Meeting Procedures) Regulations 2015, meetings are advertised in the Mercury annually in January with the Council's full meeting schedule available on the City of Hobart website here: Meeting Schedule for Council and Committees. These dates are indicative only and may be subject to change.

For further information on any of the above or if you wish to obtain copies of previous agendas or minutes, please call 6238 2407 or email davisk@hobartcity.com.au
