Chaired by the Mayor, Cllr Jon Harvey
Full Council meetings are held every seven weeks. However, if there is urgent business which needs to be transacted, then an Interim Council meeting will be held.
The Chairman of the Council is elected at the Annual Meeting of the Town Council in May and has the title of Mayor. They are then the Mayor of the Town for one year and may be re-elected Mayor again.
The Full Council deals with important business which affects the whole town. It oversees the Committees of the Council. The Council also receive reports from local District and County Councillors and bodies to which it appoints representatives.

Full Council Meetings
The Full Council delegates its services and duties to four Committees. The Full Council oversees these Committees and gives them the authority to make decisions, provide budgets for their delegated duties and make recommendations to the Full Council to make decisions that it is not in the power of the Committee to make.
The Council’s four committees meet on a regular basis throughout the year. There are also three Annual Meetings – the Annual Town Meeting, the Annual Statutory Meeting and the Precept Meeting. All Council and Committee meetings are open to the public and the agendas and minutes of meetings are published on our website, in our Archive. For meeting dates, please view our calendar.
