Elected Member briefing sessions

Elected Member information or briefing sessions (if required) are held on the first and third Monday of every month, with appropriate adjustments to accommodate public holidays.

Information and Briefings are normally held at the Civic Centre, 181 Unley Road, Unley (entrance from Oxford Terrace).

The purpose of information and briefing sessions

Information and briefing sessions provide a valuable opportunity to enhance council decision-making processes by allowing council members to become better informed on issues and seek further clarification before making decisions at formally constituted council meetings.

Elected Member Sessions are held to:

  • discuss issues involving strategy and policy
  • discuss a planning session of a general or strategic nature, or
  • brief Elected Members on issues relating to their decision-making function.

They provide a valuable opportunity to enhance the decision-making processes by providing opportunities for Elected Members to become better informed on issues and seek further clarification.

Elected Member Sessions are not used for conducting the general business of the Council or making Council decisions in any way that the Council may subsequently deal with at a formal meeting.

Public attendance

A session may be closed to the public to allow attendees to receive, discuss or consider information or a matter listed in Section 90(3) of the Local Government Act, subject to an order being made to that effect. If an order is made to close a session under a confidential provision than that order can be made by either Council or the CEO.

Please note, if all topics for discussion are of a confidential nature, the briefing will not be open to public viewing. If one or more of the topics are confidential, they will be considered at the end of the agenda allowing the public to leave before the discussion.
