Committees and Committee Meetings

The town council has two committees.   Any decisions by these committees are put to the full council meetings for further scrutiny or ratification. The meetings are open for observation by members of the public, but neither allow for public debate.

Community Working Group

The Community Working Group (CWG) is responsible for organising community-based initiatives on behalf of the full council. The CWG will meet as required.

Read the terms of reference for the CWG.

Emergency Response Committee

The Emergency Response Committee was created in November 2020, primarily to manage and co-ordinate the council’s response to an emergency situation in the parish. It will be responsible for the Council’s Emergency Plan and Business Continuity Plan, and co-ordinating any training and exercises necessary to ensure both plans remain effective and up-to-date.

Staffing Committee

The Staffing Committee deals with employment issues when required.

Due to the subjects potentially under discussion the decision about whether to open any Staffing Committee meeting to the public will be detailed prior to the meeting.
