Council meetings

Kingston City Council comprises 11 elected Councillors. Council is responsible for making decisions on behalf of the community.

Council meetings are a vital part of the decision-making process. All Council meetings are open to the public (registration may be required) and held in person in the Council Chamber located at 1230 Nepean Highway, Cheltenham, unless otherwise advised.

All meetings are live streamed and the recordings are available following the meeting.
