    Given this will be the first meeting of this nature for Council and the significance of discussions relating to COVID-19, it has been determined that other Council business, including the Morgan, Murray and Forsyth Streets matter will be postponed to a future date. This will ensure our electronic systems for community participation are functioning and tested before the item is in a future meeting agenda for Council.

    When appropriate, the report will be rescheduled for a Council meeting and further notices will be provided.

    We apologise for any inconvenience or confusion and appreciate your assistance and understanding in these ever-changing times.
