Council meetings are open to all. Members of the public are very welcome and encouraged to attend meetings.

The Planning Committee considers:

  • To comment on Licensing matters
  • Street naming when requested
  • Highways and street furniture when requested
  • Any other matter which may be delegated to it by the Council from time to time
