Council and Committee Meetings

Coronavirus update: impact on council meetings

Since the coronavirus outbreak, and following Government advice on gatherings, decisions due to be taken at Committee meetings have either been deferred or determined under delegated authority following consultation with Members of the respective Committee.

Following the recently enacted Local Authorities and Police and Crime Panels (Coronavirus) (Flexibility of Local Authority and Police and Crime Panel Meetings) (England and Wales) Regulations 2020, the Council is considering its options and potential solutions to enable delivery of virtual committee meetings within the Regulations. Once a decision has been made this will be communicated and information will be made available on our website.

Decisions made under delegated authority can be found here: Delegated Decisions in 2020

Below you can find information about Committee Meetings and decisions being made. You can view the dates of forthcoming meetings and search the minutes and reports of the Council, Cabinet and Committees.

Recording Council Meetings

The Council operates openly and transparently and recognises that the press, public and Councillors have the right to record non-confidential committee meetings. This engagement is welcomed, provided that Council business is not disrupted or disturbed.

We ask that anyone recording the meeting complies with the Council’s approved protocol (see below).
