Open Councillor Briefing Sessions

Kiama Council is trialling open councillor briefing sessions to allow our community an insight into their decision-making processes.

Open briefing sessions are an opportunity for those interested to attend, listen to the presentations being given to the councillors.

Councillors will still discuss specific business in closed sessions if required by the Local Government Act.  

But whenever possible these briefings will be open for people to listen and see first- hand what Council is working on.  

The trial of opening up councillor briefing sessions is to gauge community interest in attending the sessions.

This will then be reviewed to assess whether to make them permanent.

You can read the draft policy for the briefing sessions on this page.
