Council Meeting Dates

Whitehorse City Council generally holds two formal meetings each month (except January and October), namely Council and the Special Committee of Council meetings.

Meetings are held on a Monday evening, except when public holidays fall on the Monday and therefore the meeting is conducted on a Tuesday.  

These meetings are open to the public and commence at 7:00pm in the Council Chamber, Whitehorse Civic Centre, Nunawading.

Please note that due to COVID-19 restrictions Whitehorse City Council has implemented the shut-down of various facilities announced by the Premier, and the advanced social distancing announced by the Prime Minister.  

In accordance with the COVID-19 Omnibus (Emergency Measures) Bill 2020 – Amendment of Local Government Act 2020 our Council meetings remain open to the public via Live Stream only, do not attend in person. Meetings can be viewed via Council’s live stream platform

A copy of Councils’ meeting schedule for the remainder of 2019 and 2020 is listed below.  Where changes are necessary, advance public notice will be provided to the community.

Special Committee of Council

Unlike Council meetings, the Special Committee of Council does not consider planning matters and provides for members of the public to make presentations subject to Council’s Public Submissions Guidelines.

The Special Committee of Council will not make any decisions on presentations made to it on the night.
