About Council Meetings
Meetings of the Council and Committees of the Council are the formal occasions where discussions and resolutions are made by Councillors that govern and direct the business of the council.
Notice of meetings, Agendas
Meetings are announced by posting an Agenda at least three days before the meeting. The Agenda lists the business to be addressed at that meeting. If you would like to receive notification of Agendas when they are posted please register your email address here.

Minutes of Meetings
Minutes may be published prior to ratification at our discretion and for your information. These will be marked as ‘Draft’ on the document. They will be replaced by the ratified version as soon as practicable after the appropriate meeting.
You may download copies of previous meeting Minutes here.
Large Print copies are available from the Council Offices.
Cancellation of Meetings
Scheduled meetings may be cancelled at short notice if situations demand it.
If you want to say something at the meeting
A quarter of an hour at the start of the meeting is for questions and statements from the Public. Preference is given to topics that are Agenda Items. However, members of the Public may also wish to make statements on topics that they would like the Council to consider at a future meeting. Please will you inform the Town Clerk at the Town Council Office or by email using the Contact Us form in advance if you wish to make a statement.
Public and Press will be excluded when items of a confidential nature are discussed. Confidential Items are typically items that are sensitive for Legal, Commercial, Personal, or Employment reasons.
