The Executive is the part of the Council which is responsible for decisions within the policy framework adopted by Council. The Executive is currently made up of six councillors, selected by the Leader, plus the Leader.
Meetings of the Executive are generally open to the public, except where personal or confidential matters are to be discussed. We also endeavour to livestream public meetings to the council’s YouTube channel. Videos will then remain available for six months after the meeting, although the council reserves the right to remove a video if it deems it necessary.
If attending a meeting, you may be visible on the livestream and video. If you do not wish to be visible on camera, please speak to Democratic Services on arrival.
