THE number of decisions made by Frankston Council behind closed doors has dropped dramatically in the last five years.
A report prepared by Frankston Council officers read that in the first half of the 2022/2023 financial year, 2.84 per cent of council decisions were made behind closed doors. In the 2018/2019 financial year 28 per cent of matters were heard in closed council, the report read.
Frankston Council has come under fire this year for confidentially voting to nominate Long Street Reserve in Langwarrin as its preferred site for a new kindergarten.
