The council now devolves some decisions to the locality committees which meet regularly.

We have listed below the dates for the North West Locality Committee. These typically meet in the evenings at the City Chambers.

Any member of the public may attend any meeting of the council or its committees or sub-committees unless there is a B agenda which signifies confidential business. You are not allowed to speak at a council meeting unless you have made an advance application to do so.
