  • Proposed Class 4 Gambling and TAB Venue Policy 2021 (preferred option) and Proposed Class 4 Gambling and TAB Venue Policy 2021 (Option 2)
  • Proposed Dangerous, Affected and Insanitary Buildings Policy 2021.

Council want to hear your feedback on the proposals. You can make a submission before 5pm on 6 August 2021. There is also the opportunity to address councillors in person at a hearing. Councillors will consider all official submissions before making a final decision.
