Council Meetings

VENUE: Details of the venue and public attendance arrangements for each meeting are shown on the webpage and in the Notes box at the end of each Agenda.

All meetings of the District Council are open to the public unless there is any confidential or 'exempt' information to be considered.

Full Council and the Committees produce forward agenda plans which detail the dates and times of meetings, plus the list of items expected to be presented at those meetings.  The forward agenda plan is published with the agenda papers for each meeting.

The Council also has a number of schemes to involve the public in meetings.  Use the link 'Public Participation in Meetings' shown left.

When meetings are held in the Council offices, there is limited visitor parking at the Council offices and is limited to 1 hour. Ample free public car parking is available nearby.

Meetings in the Council Chamber

The maximum capacity for meetings in the Council Chamber has been set by the Fire Officer and this will normally give a capacity for public attendance of 60 people.

For Planning Committee meetings, preference will be given to applicants, agents and registered speakers.
