Council workshops

The purpose of a workshop, briefing or presentation is to prepare our mayor and councillors with the appropriate background information and knowledge they need in order to make informed decisions for the district.

Hastings District Council is committed to conducting business in a manner that is open, transparent, and facilitates accountability and public participation.

Workshops are part of an educative phase of Council’s decision-making process and provide an opportunity for discussion between elected members and council staff. Workshops cannot be used to make final decisions - these can only be made at council meetings.

Council workshops are expected to be open to the public, unless there are good reasons to exclude the public. These reasons include that the topics for discussion:

  • Are, or are likely to be, subject to litigation
  • Include commercial information (Council and/or external parties) that must be protected or the proposal is subject to negotiation
  • Include people's personal information that is required to be kept confidential
  • Include matters in the early stages of conceptual development where the proposal will be subject to full commercial engagement and participation
  • Other reasons which would render an open workshop unreasonable.

If you have any questions or would like to request further information about workshops please contact us.

Workshops Calendar

Council's workshops are held in the Council Chamber, 207 Lyndon Road East, Hastings, unless stated otherwise. Note that workshops times are subject to change at short notice.
