Public participation at meetings
With the exception of the Council meeting, Hearings Committee meetings and commissioner hearings, a public comment period of up to 30 minutes is set aside at the start of ordinary committee meetings, to receive comments from members of the public on matters specified on the committee's Agenda or, if time permits, on other matters relating to that committee. For extraordinary committee meetings, however, public comment is only received with the approval of the Chairperson and must be confined to those items appearing on the Agenda for the particular meeting concerned.
For both committee and full Council meetings, deputations may be received provided an application for admission setting forth the subject has been lodged with the Chief Executive at least seven working days before the date of the meeting concerned, and the request has been subsequently approved by the Chairperson. In cases of urgency or major public interest, the Chairperson may determine that a deputation be received in a shorter time frame.

- Customer Service Centre, Civic Administration Building
- City Library (NZ Pacific Islands Zone, 2nd floor)
