A note about Council agendas
Council publishes the agenda header, a list of items to be discussed at each meeting, so that anyone who might have an interest in discussions will have a reasonable idea of the agenda's scope.
Full agendas are often hundreds of pages long with sometimes heavy graphic content, making their electronic files massive in size and prohibitive to download. Sometimes agenda attachments are not available in electronic form. Print copies are available at Nelson Public Libraries, Council reception, and for pickup prior to Council meetings. Copies can be obtained on request by contacting an Administration Adviser on +64 3 546 0200.
A public forum is held at the beginning of Council meetings. Anyone wishing to speak at this public forum is requested to give prior notice to an Administration Adviser, on +64 3 546 0200.
Resource consent applications are heard by the Hearings Panel. When there is a perceived or real Council interest, or when provided for by statute, the Hearings Panel defers to an independent commissioner to decide on the resource consent application. As such, hearings are held when needed, not on a regular schedule.
Hearings Panel meetings are scheduled fortnightly in order to review applications in a timely manner. If there are no applications, meetings are cancelled.
