Attending Council meetings

The public are welcome to attend meetings of the Council and its various Committees and Sub-Committees, except where confidential business is being discussed. 

Members of the public who wish to attend meetings at the City Chambers do not need to arrange this in advance. You can go straight to Reception where staff will explain where to go. If you wish to speak at a committee meeting, you will need to request this in advance. Times of Committees vary and can be checked in the Public notice of meetings.

Where and when meetings take place

The Full Council meets in the Main Council Chamber in the City Chambers. When meetings are held in other venues, this will be shown on the public notice and on the front page of the agenda.
