Some decisions are made by the full Council, but many are delegated to different committees.
Each of our committees has a different remit, making decisions about different services and functions that the Council performs. Each committee assists with developing, implementing and reviewing policies of all areas within its remit.
Part 2 of the Council's constitution (Responsibility for functions) gives a detailed explanation of each of our committees remits, and responsibilities.
