Most of the Council’s meetings are held in public; anyone can attend to hear what is being discussed. Some meetings allow members of the public to speak on an item that is listed on the agenda and some meetings can be watched via webcast.

Where it is not possible for the public to attend a particular meeting, it will be made clear on the agenda.
