Committee details


Purpose of committee

The Council, comprising all 48 Members and Chaired by the Mayor, meets on a regular basis and sets the overall Budget and the Authority’s Policy Framework.  Decision-making related to the implementation of the Budget and Policy Framework is devolved to the Cabinet.


The first Council meeting of the Municipal Year, known as the Annual Council Meeting, is somewhat different from the ordinary Council meetings in that it is devoted largely to appointing the Mayor and Deputy Mayor and to agreeing sizes and allocations of seats on Committees etc.
