Committees: Agendas, Reports and Minutes

Members of the Council sit on eight main committees, listed in the 'More pages in this section' menu on this page. Each committee makes recommendations connected to a particular area of the council’s work, such as Education, Roads, Marine Services and Economic Development.

Committee pages can be accessed from the 'More pages in this section' menu.

Committee papers for meetings after July 2021 can now be found in the Council Meetings Calendar

The exceptions are the Planning Committee and the Local Review Committee which deal with planning applications and notices of review – these committees operate with full delegation.

Cycle of Meetings

A cycle of meetings involving each of the committees takes place five times a year. Once a cycle has been completed, a meeting of the full council is held. All 21 councillors take part – and make final decisions on the recommendations made by the committees.
