Attending Council meetings

We welcome attendance at our meetings. Generally most meetings are open to the public and you can stay for as long as you want. There will be places for members of the public to sit in the meeting room.


A copy of the agenda will be published on the Council’s website prior to the meeting.


Find out the dates of our main meetings and access the agendas, minutes and reports for:

  • Council
  • Cabinet
  • Planning Committees
  • Scrutiny Committees

 

Questions and Petitions


You can ask a question or submit a petition at our Council meetings. There is an agenda items called 'Public Questions’.


You have to attend the meeting to ask your questions, unless you request we make a reasonable adjustment. If it is not possible to answer your question at the meeting, you will receive a written reply within 14 days.


Your local Councillor may submit a petition on behalf of local residents at Council meetings also.

 

Recording meetings


You may not take photographs, film and audio-record the proceedings at Council, Cabinet and Committee meetings whilst they are open to the public.

 

How decisions are made


At meetings the Councillors will consider the reports and recommendations from officers and reach a decision based on that information.


In the case of Scrutiny Committees, this can also involve evidence from people and organisations outside of the Council and it can sometimes take several meetings before the Scrutiny Committee reaches its conclusions and makes any recommendations to the Cabinet or Council.
