Council Meetings Dates

Forum & Ordinary Council Meetings

Council Meetings are generally held on the third Wednesday of each month commencing at 5:30pm. Meetings are convened in the Council Chambers at 395 Fitzgerald Street, Northam unless otherwise specified.

A Council Forum meeting is held on the Wednesday in the week immediately preceding the Council Meeting. These meetings also commence at 5:30pm and are held in the Council Chambers, however where the Council meeting is convened at another location as specified above, the Forum meeting will also be held at this location. Council Forum Meetings are not decision making meetings, they are in place to allow Elected Members to review the upcoming Council Agenda and seek clarifications or ask questions of staff to ensure they have access to sufficient information when making a determination on matters at the meeting of Full Council.
