Yes. Meetings are open to the public but there may be some matters which will be considered in private. During such situations, members of the public will be asked to leave the meeting at this point. The circumstances under which we can consider matters in private are tightly controlled by law.
Seating in the public gallery at meetings is limited, therefore places must be booked in advance by contacting the Committee Manager on the contact details below. Meetings can also be accessed via the council's committee YouTube channel where meetings can be viewed live, or at a later date.
Please note: refreshments are not normally available for members of the public to access at meetings.
