Committee details

County Council

Purpose of committee

The County Council comprises of all 53 councillors and meets six times a year. Certain kinds of decisions, for example, changing the council’s constitution or setting the rate of council tax can only be taken at meetings of the full Council.


The full Council has such wide powers it would be impractical for it to make every decision itself.  It therefore concerns itself with setting the broad policy and budgetary framework of the authority.  More detailed decisions are made by what are known as “council bodies”, for example, the Planning Committee and by the Council’s Cabinet.
