The Council appoints a number of committees to undertake the business of the authority. These committees have their own budgets allocated and delegated authority to make decisions on the Council’s behalf, as long as those decisions are within budget and Council policy.
The Full Council meets every six weeks, Council meetings are held at 7pm in the St Leonard’s Room, Newton’s Place, with the exception of the Planning Committee which meets every three weeks on a Tuesday at 2pm.
In addition, the Council has four Committees with delegated authority to act on behalf of the Council:
- Finance & Audit Committee
- Community & Heritage Committee
- Policy & Resources Committee
- Planning Committee

All meetings are open to the public and offer an opportunity for public participation during which anyone can ask Councillors a question or make a statement regarding items on the agenda.
