Bay of Plenty Regional Council meets as a full council every six weeks, and also has core committees and joint committees to help it make decisions.

The Council agenda is a public document although parts of it may be kept confidential – if certain circumstances relating to privileged or commercially sensitive material apply. Minutes of meetings must be kept and made publicly available subject to the provisions of the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987.

Current agendas and minutes can be found on the appropriate committee page.
