Council Meetings

Formal Council Meetings are held at six weekly intervals, with the cycle commencing in February and ending in mid December. The Council operates a system of double debate, whereby reports and recommendations from all Committees are reconsidered at the Council meeting in order to reach a final decision. The exception is when an urgent decision is required, in which case a decision of Council may be made at Committee level.

Council meetings are held at the Hawke's Bay Regional Council Chamber, 159 Dalton Street, Napier. 

Extraordinary meetings of Council are called to deal with specific issues, as and when required. Public notification of the meeting must be given as early as is reasonable, and must include the general nature of the business to be transacted.

If the meeting was not previously notified in the usual manner, resolutions from these meetings must be notified as soon as practicable, unless the resolution was passed in the public excluded section of the meeting.
