Meeting Dates for Council, Local Authorities and Committees

The West Daly Regional Council was formed following a meeting of clan groups in the Wadeye, Peppimenarti and Nganmarriyanga regions, who made it clear to the Chief Minister, the Deputy Chief Minister and the Member for Daly, in person, that they wanted a stronger voice and greater control over the delivery of services in the Wadeye, Peppimenarti and Nganmarriyanga region. 

West Daly Regional Council commenced operations on 1st July 2014 with the swearing-in of members who became Councillors and the representatives of the people of the West Daly region. Council conducted the swearing-in ceremony in Peppimenarti on the 4th of July 2014.

The people of West Daly wanted greater control over the delivery of services in their wards. As their Council, we are committed to coordinating the delivery of these programs. 

Local communities' strong "voice" has been strengthened through the community's Local Authorities. The West Daly people who come to meetings ask for things that the Council can deliver such as maintenance of toilet blocks, a sporting field big enough to host an AFL game or a new ride-on mower to make the lawns look great, plus lots more. The members of the Local Authorities play a very important role by giving Councillors who are at the meetings their 'wish list' for what they want in their community. 

Councillors will listen to the stories and bring that back to the Ordinary Council meeting to work on a Regional Council plan and the budgets to make things happen. 

All meetings of the Council are open to the community and homelands to use their voice and have greater control over their community.

Meeting dates are set to keep things organised and are part of the Council's commitment to transparent decision-making and engagement with our community. 

The rules for conducting meetings are dictated by:

The Minister for Local Government may make guidelines for the purposes of the Local Government Act 2019.

Guidelines made under the Act include:
