How decisions are made

How decisions are made

Decisions about the way we run our services are taken by the 75 councillors that you elect every 4 years. These decisions are implemented by council staff.

The 75 councillors come from different political parties, and some have different roles in the decision making process. Some are part of the Cabinet, while others sit on committees.

Meetings and decisions

You can find all council meetings listed in our council meetings calendar.

You can follow all decisions taken by councillors on our decisions page.

Our constitution

The rules for making decisions are set out in the our constitution. This includes a code of conduct that councillors agree to follow.
