Agendas for all our meetings are posted in our notice boards (keep an eye out for colour coded agendas linked to the colours below). We welcome any members of the public to our meetings and there is a 10-minute opportunity at the beginning of any of our meetings for members of the public to speak on an agenda item. We are always delighted to see residents in attendance. Click for the full calendar of dates for meetings.
Full Council meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of each month (except in August).
Discussions and decisions are made on agenda items at these meetings and they are the driving force behind the actions of the Council.
