Council Meetings re-open to the community

Monday, 01 February

With the State Government easing COVID-safety measures, we are once again able to welcome the public into the Council Chamber to watch proceedings.

To ensure the safety of the public, staff and Councillors, we have implemented a COVID plan for all Council Meetings and Briefings.

Members of the public are asked to be in the Corporate Centre lobby (facing Oliver Avenue) between 5.30 and 6pm. After a temperature check, you will be required to register using a QR Code (alternative arrangements are in place for those without a smart phone). If you have any cold or flu symptoms, please enjoy our LiveSteam services through our Website and Facebook page.  

Personal information collected will be managed in accordance with Service NSW contact tracing policies. Those unwilling to provide necessary details will be refused entry.

You will then be escorted to the Chamber by a COVID Marshal.

The number of people allowed into the Chamber’s public gallery is capped at eight, with an overflow room (with live-streaming) capped at an additional 22 people.

Those who are registered to speak during Public Access will be given priority seating in the public gallery, with the remainder of the seating allocated on a ‘first in, first served basis’.

Hand sanitiser will be available and people are asked to socially distance where practicable and remain seated. Masks are not mandatory, but their use is encouraged. Surfaces will be disinfected before and after meetings.

Our friendly COVID marshallers are here for your safety; please follow their directions.

Ordinary Monthly Meetings will still be broadcast on our Facebook Page and website at www.lismore.nsw.gov.au
