Meetings, agendas and minutes

You will be able to access from this page meetings of the County Council, Cabinet, Scrutiny Commission and its committees, bodies in the Regulatory area - which includes the Development Control and Regulatory Board (planning), and Highway Forums. Just click on the following link:

Some meetings of the above bodies are scheduled in advance however a number of other meetings are also arranged on an ad hoc basis and are included in a list of meetings which are published on a weekly basis.

You can also search for documents via keywords. Once located, you can view them within your browser. If a document is located by searching via keywords, you have the option of downloading extracts of documents, rather than the whole file.

A general meetings archive of agenda, decisions and minutes for all current and expired council bodies since 2001 is also available. Simply choose a year and then whichever body you require.

You can also submit a new, or sign an existing, e-petition by accessing our e-petitions area.
