When Council enters Committee of the Whole, the stream will continue, however, no audio will be available. When Council comes out of its confidential session, the audio will recommence and the outcomes of any discussion in Committee will be reported.

Addressing a Council meeting

Council holds one Ordinary Council meeting and one Policy Review Committee meeting each month, on average.

Anyone can request permission to address a meeting about an issue or matter on the Agenda, providing the number of speakers is limited to 3 in support of any proposal and 3 against.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Council will only be accepting written submissions to items on the agenda by completing the form below. All forms must be received by midday on the day of the meeting. Council staff will read out the submissions for Councillors and members of the public on the live audio feed. Any submissions that are not read out will be distributed to Councillors for their information.

Meetings are generally held on Monday nights with Ordinary Council meetings starting at 7pm in the Council Chambers, and Policy Review Committee meetings starting at 7pm on Level 1 of the Penrith City Council Civic Centre. View the Penrith City Centre Parking Map for details on car park locations and time restrictions.

All Council meetings (except confidential sessions of the meetings) are recorded and will be placed on the Council website for public access.  Recordings of meetings are considered 'Government Information' and Council will retain the information for a period of at least one year and may be disposed of in accordance with State Records Act 1998.
