Here you can view council’s meetings calendar that displays when pertinent meetings will take place. From community committees to full council meetings, you’ll also find the agendas, minutes, videos and other important information from meetings that have come and gone.
Napier’s Council and standing committees meet every six weeks, with the scheduling arranged so formal meetings are taking place fortnightly (Sustainable Napier Committee and Future Napier Committee, then two weeks later Napier People and Places Committee followed by Prosperous Napier Committee, and two weeks later the Council meeting).
These meetings are normally held on Thursdays starting at 9:30am. Please check the meeting schedule for the meeting venue as these may vary.
Public Forum and Deputations - Up to 30 minutes at the start of each open meeting may be used for public forums - deputations - where the public may present to Council on matters of particular interest and concern. The structure of a public forum is guided by Council's standing orders and anyone wishing to speak must seek the approval of the Chair prior to the meeting. This can be done by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. The time allowed is five minutes per speaker. No debate will take place in regard to issues raised at public forums and no decisions will be made, except to refer the information/matter if required, to a committee for further consideration.
The Council operates a system of double debate, meaning recommendations from the standing committees are reconsidered at the Council meeting in order to reach a final decision (called a resolution). On occasion an urgent decision may be required, in which case a decision of Council may be made at Committee level.
Extraordinary meetings of Council may be called as and when required to deal with specific issues. 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.
