All decisions that are made by the Council are made in public meetings. The Council meets once a month to discuss and make decisions on the items set on the agenda. Representatives from local groups and charities may be invited to address the Council with information or to request project support, and members of the public are able to contribute at the discretion of the Chair of the meeting.
The agenda for the each council meeting is published during the week before the meeting (check the link on the sidebar at the right of this page), and the minutes of all recent meetings are available on this site.
(If you cannot find the minutes that you require please contact the Clerk).
The Council holds two 'Annual Meetings' on the second Monday in May. The first is the Annual Meeting of the Council - a formal meeting which acts as the Council's AGM and deals with procedural matters, including the appointment of a Mayor and Deputy Mayor the forthcoming year and the approval of the previous year's accounts. The second is the Annual Parish Meeting. This is a meeting of the electors of the town and offers an opportunity to come together and find out what's been happening during the past year. Community groups are invited to submit reports on their activities.
