Council decisions

Elected councillors may be members of several committees where they vote on key decisions and make recommendations. 

The full council (a meeting of all council members) is responsible for all decisions. But in practice, most of the work is given to smaller groups of councillors or council officers.

Every council must publish:

  • details of when key decisions will be taken
  • papers of meetings – at least 5 working days beforehand
  • minutes of meetings – showing the decisions that were made

Tips on how to conduct a successful search:

  1. Use specific keywords – be as specific as you can in your wording
  2. Simplify your search – try not to use too many words
  3. Use quotation marks – enclosing a word or phrase within quotation marks prompts the search engine to search for that specific word or phrase 
  4. Only use the advance search option to filter if you are sure of the committee’s name or decision dates
