How we make decisions

Decisions are made by committees and the full council. View committee meeting minutes

See our constitution for the full details of the roles and responsibilities of committees.

Our Members' Information Bulletin (below) is published monthly.

Our public meetings page contains guidance on accessing committee papers, speaking at meetings and submitting questions.

Councillors must register and disclose disclosable pecuniary interests and other interests, as defined in the Members’ Code of Conduct. For more information, see our Councillor Code of Conduct and view the Register of Member Interests

Councillors are paid a basic allowance, and members with special responsibilities receive an additional payment. See Councillor allowances for the current and previous allowances paid to members.
