Councillors


Committees

The Town Council appoints three main committees, of which all elected Councillors are members. These are for Planning, Leisure & Community Services and Finance and most of the Council's decision making is delegated to these.

Sub-Committees and Working Groups are appointed by the three main Committees to carry out their work and to make recommendations back to the main Committees for eventual adoption.

When necessary other Sub-Committees and Working Groups are convened, which report directly back to the main Committees and ultimately the Council.

The Committees are regulated by our Standing Orders, Financial Regulations and Committee Terms of Reference.
