Agendas, reports and minutes explained

This page explains the Council's governance arrangements and the decisions that can be taken by officers. It also provides details of when meetings are due to take place and links to view Minutes and meeting papers.

Scheme of Administration

The Council's decision-making structure is based on a Cabinet-style model. This model does not have service committees which are linked to one particular service department, but a Cabinet which considers business from all the Council's services and departments.

Apart from the Cabinet, the council still has a number of committees which deal with other matters such as education, planning and licensing.

Full details of all the council's committees and their areas of responsibility are contained in the council's:

Scheme of Delegated Functions

The Council's Scheme of Delegated Functions sets out all those powers that can be exercised by particular officers without the need for committee approval.

Standing Orders

The conduct of meetings of the Council and its committees is governed by the Council's Standing Orders.

The Standing Orders provide for matters such as the role of the Provost; the order of business at meetings; the procedure for the submission of notices of motion; rules of debate; voting; and the call-in of decisions for further scrutiny.
