Deputations

What is a Deputation?

A deputation is an opportunity to address Council on any item that is the responsibility of the City of Canning or relating to an item on a Council meeting agenda. An owner, applicant or any member of the public with an interest in the item can make a deputation at an Ordinary Council Meeting.

As Council Meetings are to be held electronically and therefore not available for the public to attend, deputations are to be submitted in writing in advance of the meeting. Deputations will be limited to a maximum of 5 minutes.

If you would like to make a deputation you will need to register your request by completing the Deputation Form (preferably via email) by 5pm on the Monday immediately prior to the Ordinary Council Meeting.

Requests for deputations, accompanied by a written description of the subject and your supporting rationale can be either:
  • Emailed to customer@canning.wa.gov.au unmarked Ordinary Council Meeting – Deputation; or
  • Lodged at the City’s Administration Building in the MAILBOX.
  •  
Your deputation, if approved, will be granted a maximum of 5 minutes and will be read out at the Ordinary Council Meeting.
