Council and Committee Meeting Dates

Upcoming Council and Committee meetings for 2024 are listed in the table below. Please note that all Council, Planning Committee and Submissions Committee meetings will be held at Colac Otway Performing Arts and Cultural Centre (COPACC), Colac unless otherwise advertised.

Council will take all reasonable steps to hold at least one scheduled Council meeting every six months at a suitable location in Apollo Bay in 2024. The first of these will be the Scheduled Council meeting on 27 March 2024.

Election Period (from midday on 24 September to 6pm on 26 October 2024)

The second and fourth Wednesdays of October fall within the Election (Caretaker) Period. Therefore no meetings have been scheduled in October. If a Council decision is required on a matter (i.e., Annual Report), an Unscheduled Council meeting will be called.

Council, Planning Committee and Submission Committee meetings are livestreamed (where the venue has the capability to do so) and members of the public can view these meetings on Colac Otway Shire Council's YouTube channel.
