Public Participation

There are several ways that members of the public can make their views known at Council meetings:

Questions from the Gallery

Council has allocated a time for the public to ask questions at ordinary meetings of Council.  Questions may be asked by members of the Gallery regarding matters of Council business.

Members of the Gallery may ask up to two questions and at the discretion of the Mayor, one follow up question to each of the main questions.  These questions must be in writing and supplied to the Chief Executive Officer by 5pm the day of the meeting. Questions can be submitted by emailing; delivering in person to the Civic Centre, 1 Bay Road, Victor Harbor; or posting to PO Box 11, Victor Harbor SA 5211 (remember to allow sufficient time for delivery).

If a response cannot be provided at the meeting then a written reply will be sent to the proposer of the question prior to the next meeting.  The written request should therefore contain the name and address details of the person submitting the question.  For further information on meeting procedures click here.


Petitions allow the community to bring matters of concern to the Council's attention.  Council can be petitioned for any matter that comes under its jurisdiction.

Council considers a document to be a petition when it:

The petition should include, for each person who has signed the petition, their name, address and normal signature.  The action requested of Council must be re-stated on the top of each page of the petition.

A deputation allows a person to appear before a Council meeting in order to address or make a presentation to the Council on an issue.  A person wishing to make a deputation must seek the permission of the Mayor in writing.

Deputations are limited to a maximum of three per meeting and each deputation is allowed a maximum of 10 minutes to make their presentation.


Presentations are an opportunity for an organisation, Council officer(s) or member of the public to provide the Council with information relevant to a matter currently under consideration.  Presentations usually relate to a Council report.  The duration is up to 10 minutes and generally limited to one presentation per meeting.
