Welcome to the democracy section

Welcome to the democracy section of the Council’s website. In this section you can access a wide range of information and documents relating to the Council’s decision making processes, Councillors, Committees and meetings, including agendas and minutes.

The Council year begins in May with the Annual Council meeting where the Mayor and Deputy Mayor are elected. There are then five full meetings of the Council (these meetings are attended by all Councillors).

Between Council meetings, groups of Councillors meet on other Committees, Boards and Panels to discuss Council matters for example the Regulatory Board (Planning), Licensing Committee etc.

You can attend meetings to listen. Meeting dates, times and locations are detailed under the 'Calendar' or 'Meetings' link – a majority of meetings are held at the Civic Centre commencing at 7:30pm, apart from Regulatory Board which starts at 7:00pm.

The links on the left will allow you to navigate your way round the democracy section of the website.
