Council Meetings

Glenorchy City Council meets on the last Monday of each month unless this clashes with a public holiday. Meetings are held at Council’s chambers in Main Road, Glenorchy and start at 6pm.

Public attendance and online viewing

As of January 2022, the current risks associated with COVID-19 mean that members of the public are not currently permitted to attend meetings of Council in-person.

We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in Tasmania and will resume face-to-face meetings as soon as it is safe to do so.

All Council meetings will continue to be streamed live on Glenorchy City Council’s Facebook page, YouTube Channel and on our website (Watch Live page). You don’t need a Facebook or YouTube account to watch the live streams.

Public Questions

Although meetings are currently closed to the members of the public, you are still able to submit any questions on notice for the meeting. You can submit questions by:

  • using our Online Form
  • emailing them to gccmail@gcc.tas.gov.au
  • sending a hard-copy to Executive Officer, Glenorchy City Council, PO Box 103, Glenorchy Tasmania 7010

Questions can be asked for public question time by presenting them in writing to Council by 12:00 noon two business days before the meeting. Late questions will be held-over until the next meeting.

Agendas, Minutes and Reports to Council

Meeting Procedures

Meetings of Council are governed by the procedures set out in Local Government (Meeting Procedures) Regulations 2015.

Council has a Meeting Procedures Policy which fills in the procedural gaps that the Regulations don’t cover.
