Council meetings


The Council elects a Leader from among its members. The Leader of the Council appoints the Cabinet and provides overall strategic and corporate direction for the Council.

The Council publishes the agenda and minutes of all Council meetings. Agendas for each meeting are published at least five days before the meeting, along with the reports to be considered.

You can find out more information about the meetings and outcomes here:

Committees, agendas and minutes

Reports containing ‘exempt’ information (for example, details relating to individuals) are not published. Where reports are not available five days before a meeting, they will be made available as soon as reasonably practical.

A record of decisions taken at meetings – the information sheet – is published as soon as possible after each meeting.
