How the Council works
Committees and decision making
Members of the public are encouraged to attend the meetings and see what decisions councillors take on their behalf. The agendas and minutes of meetings can be accessed via the above link.
All meetings are open to the public, though in some cases members of the public may be excluded where personal or confidential matters are being discussed. At every meeting, members of the public can address the councillors on specific items on the agenda.
At the ordinary meetings of the full Council, Members of the Public can also ask a question or make a statement on anything which affects the borough or residents, provided it is relevant to the Council's functions or duties.
A wide range of information and documents relating to the Council decision making process can be accessed here.
