Meetings, agendas and minutes

Welcome to the Democratic Services pages of the website. Below is a brief guide to the content available by clicking on the menu to the left.

The Openness of Local Government Bodies Regulations 2014

Members of the public attending any public meeting need to be aware that the The Openness of Local Government Bodies Regulations 2014 give permission for attendees to "record proceedings" at our meetings. Information about what this means is available from Democratic Services.

What’s new

Go here to see newly-published minutes, agendas, decisions or notification of meetings about to happen. You can filter the results by Committee or by Ward.

Your Councillors

Councillors can be sorted by name, political party or Ward. Councillors' details include contact information, register of interests, committee membership, meeting attendance statistics, declarations of interests at meetings and links to other Councillors supporting the same Ward.


An interactive calendar of meetings open to the public. Clicking on a meeting name will take you to its agenda and minutes, or to a notice of when these will be published. Agendas appear on the website a week before the meeting date so you have at least five clear working days to read the information.


Select a committee for links to meeting dates and documents. When reading the agenda for a meeting, click on the title of an item to view the associated report (the file size is displayed next to the title), or you can view the entire agenda at once by opening the "Agenda Reports Pack" at the top of the webpage.


A list of recent decisions taken by the Council, Cabinet, Committees and Portfolio Holders and Council Officers. This list can be filtered by Decision Status (Approved, Called-In, etc.), Date and Decision Maker.


The Constitution of the Council contains rules governing how we operate, how our decisions are made, and ensures the procedures in place are efficient, transparent and accountable to you. Click on the link to access a copy.

Forward Plans

The rolling programme of decisions to be made by the Council over a four month period.

It is possible to filter the plans by Ward to see forthcoming decisions affecting just your area.
