Public meetings

View the calendar of council meetings

In line with public health measures to mitigate the spread of Covid-19 and to enable the council to focus on the delivery of critical services for the vulnerable, all public meetings were suspended in March and non-essential meetings cancelled.

Urgent decisions continue to be made in accordance with the officer and members schemes of delegation detailed in the council’s Constitution and urgent decision-making procedures.

Emergency powers legislation from both Westminster and the Welsh Government suspends certain statutory duties and timescales during this emergency period. This removed the need for an Annual General Meeting in May and permitted the continuance of existing appointments.
