Workshops/Information Sessions Informal Gatherings
Workshops, information sessions and informal gatherings of Elected Members, or Elected Members and council staff are, by their nature, a non-compulsory meeting of the council.
These sessions are designed to provide history, context or additional information to assist council members to carry out their functions.
Members of the public are able to attend as observers only and are not to take part in the discussion. Refer to the Council policy (Informal Gatherings) for additional information.
Any workshops, information sessions or informal gatherings closed to the public will be specified and will include a reason.

- be an original document
- clearly set out the request or submission of the petitioners
- state the request or submission on every page and
- be delivered to the principal office (the Civic Centre) of the Council.

Deputations to Council
Groups and/or individuals may appear before Council or its Committees in order to address the Elected Members on a particular matter of concern to either themselves or a group of people whom they represent. This is called a Deputation.
To present a deputation at a meeting please contact us using one of the methods below:
- Contact Council by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, advising you wish to make a Deputation to Council.
- Write to Council at 163 St Vincent Street, Port Adelaide SA 5015, advising you wish to make a Deputation to Council.
- Fill in the online deputation request form (provided below).
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) will provide the request to the Principal Member (the Mayor) who will determine if the deputation will be heard at the meeting of Council, one of its Committees, or refused.
The CEO will inform the person requesting the deputation of the outcome (and provide details of the meeting to the person if the deputation is accepted and that they will be permitted to speak for up to 5 minutes with time after to respond to any questions from Elected Members).
If the Principal Member refuses to allow a deputation to appear at a meeting, the Presiding Member must report the decision to the next meeting of the council.
Please provide at least 5 business days’ notice prior to the date of the meeting to which your request relates.
