Strategy & Policy Committee - Profile

The dates shown (generally Thursdays) are those for the Strategy and Policy Meetings when Councillors debate any issues and vote on recommendations. Officers present the reports and may be questioned by Councillors at the Briefing Meetings which are generally on the preceding Tuesdays.

All these meetings are generally open to the public. They usually commence at 9.15 am and start with any petitions from the public (these should be notified to Democratic Services in advance).

Please note

Information and recommendations contained in all agendas and reports are recommendations only and are not to be construed, in any way, as Council policy until adopted. Minutes are unconfirmed until confirmed at a subsequent meeting.
