In this section you can access a wide range of information and documents relating to the council’s decision making processes, find out about forthcoming Council meetings and decisions and obtain details for your local political representatives.
Government regulations that came into effect on 4 April 2020 allow remote meetings to take place and to make formal decisions at those meetings. All of our formal meetings are live broadcast. The meetings are live streamed via the Council’s You Tube page. Details are in the documents further down this page.
The Chief Executive Officer is also able to exercise emergency decision making powers where necessary and appropriate in order to ensure that the Council is able to continue to respond effectively and efficiently to a still rapidly changing situation.
At this stage, there is no intention to return to holding meetings in person for the foreseeable future.
During coronavirus we will be carrying out some of our meetings virtually. You can watch those meetings live and replay previous meetings via:Live meetings
