Council meetings 2012

Agendas are available at least two working days prior to the meetings. Meeting minutes are posted after they are approved at a subsequent Council meeting.

All agendas and meeting minutes are available in PDF format. To view these documents you will need software that opens PDF files. Download Adobe Acrobat Reader.

A note about Council agendas

Council publishes the agenda header, a list of items to be discussed at each meeting, so that anyone who might have an interest in discussions will have a reasonable idea of the agenda's scope.

Full agendas are often hundreds of pages long with sometimes heavy graphic content, making their electronic files massive in size and prohibitive to download. Sometimes agenda attachments are not available in electronic form. Print copies are available at Nelson Public Libraries, Council reception, and for pickup prior to Council meetings. Copies can be obtained on request by contacting an Administration Adviser on +64 3 546 0200.

Public forum

A public forum is held at the beginning of Council meetings. For meetings with a starting time of 9am, the public forum is at 9am. For meetings starting at 1pm, the public forum is at 1pm.

Anyone wishing to speak at this public forum is requested to give prior notice to an Administration Adviser, on +64 3 546 0200.

Hearings Panel

Resource consent applications are heard by the Hearings Panel. When there is a perceived or real Council interest, or when provided for by statute, the Hearings Panel defers to an independent commissioner to decide on the resource consent application. As such, hearings are held when needed, not on a regular schedule.

Hearings Panel meetings are scheduled fortnightly in order to review applications in a timely manner. If there are no applications, meetings are cancelled.

Find out more about the Hearings Panel and view agendas.
