Information requested by candidates
This enables Council information to be available to all candidates on an equal basis and applies to information that is not already easily searchable publicly.
As information is requested we will load the requests and answers here so all candidates have equal access to the information.
Candidate asked: What date can election hoardings go up?
Answer: Election signs are permitted one calendar month before election day and must come down before midnight before election day. More details for candidates are on the website.
Candidate asked: Are candidates allowed to utilise "Parks" to host Campaign gatherings for free BBQ etc? Or is this considered a no go zone being a Council asset?
Answer: Public reserves are open to all members of the public. If you’re planning to use a facility, such as the library or pavilion, that require booking then you would need to follow the same process as a normal user when booking the venue, including paying a bond etc. if applicable. If you’re planning to use a Council reserve that doesn’t require booking we would just ask that you be courteous of other users and be sure to clean up after / repair any damage etc.
Keep in mind that election signs are not permitted on Council owned or controlled land.
