Any person making a submission must state in the submission whether he or she wishes to appear in person, or be represented by a person specified in the submission, at an Ordinary Meeting of Council to be held at 6.30pm on Tuesday 16 April in the Civic Centre.

Please note that copies of submissions (including submitters’ names and addresses) will be made available at the Council meeting at which the above proposal will be considered. Council is also required to make submissions available for public inspection for a period of twelve months.
