How can I find out what decisions are being taken?

The agenda and papers for all committee meetings are published 5 working days before the meeting. Copies can be downloaded from our Committee Management Information System.

Every month the Council also publishes a list of future decisions known as the Forward Plan. This provides a summary of upcoming business and sets out when particular items are due to be considered by the Full Council, Cabinet, Cabinet Members and Cabinet Sub-Committees.

Can I take part in meetings?

Council meetings are normally held in public and members of the public are welcome to attend to listen to the discussion. Members of the public also have the right to speak on any item on the agenda for that meeting.

Anyone wishing to speak at a meeting should contact us either via customer services or the officer responsible for the committee (their name and contact details will be given on the front page of the agenda) by 12 noon, two working days before the meeting.

An individual addressing the meeting is allowed up to 3 minutes to make their point.

Live webcasts

If you are unable to attend the meeting, you may still be able to watch the proceedings as the council now webcasts many of its meetings live on the web.

My issue is not on the agenda!

If you need to speak to your councillors about an issue that is not being discussed at a meeting, you may wish to contact them directly.
