We are considering making a local law to be known as the "Common Seal and Conduct at Meetings Local Law".

Council will meet to consider making a local law in the form of the proposed local law at the Council Meeting on 24 August 2020.

Purpose and outcomes of the proposed Local Law

The purposes of this Local Law is to:

  • revoke Council’s Meeting Procedure Local Law 2017
  • regulate the use of the common seal
  • prohibit unauthorised use of the common seal or any device resembling the common seal
  • create offences relating to the conduct at Council and delegated Committee meetings

If the proposed local law is made, it will:

  • regulate the storage and use of the common seal
  • establish a law which will maintain order at meetings
  • create enforcement mechanisms for contravention of the proposed local law, which may incur a penalty specified in the proposed local law
