Calendar of council meetings

See our calendar list of council meetings and when they are due to take place.

Watch a meeting live

From 15 December 2021 we will be live streaming the vast majority of our formal committee meetings to allow people to watch remotely. This follows new guidance published by the government following the move to Plan B, council meetings must still be held in person. Strict infection control measures will be in place at meetings to reduce the risk of transmission of coronavirus, including wearing of face coverings unless exempt, social distancing, one-way systems and encouragement that lateral flow tests are taken in advance.

In order to reduce the number of people attending for safety reasons, the council is resuming live streaming of the vast majority of meetings, to allow people to watch remotely to reduce the risk of transmission.

For these meetings we publish the link to watch a meeting live on YouTube five working days before the meeting takes place.

To access this, select and click on the link of the relevant meeting within our calendar list of council meetings. The YouTube link will be available, along with the meeting papers (for example the agenda, previous minutes and relevant supporting documents).

How to watch a meeting if you miss it

After the meeting has taken place, we publish a link to the video of the meeting. To access this, simply click on the link of the relevant meeting within our calendar list of council meetings. This video is available for at least six months after the meeting has taken place.
