Full Council

Chaired by the Mayor, Cllr Geraldine Collins

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.

Interim Full Council

Any urgent business which needs to be transacted between Full Council meetings is dealt with at Interim Council meetings.

All planning applications for developments of eleven or more homes, or developments of any size are reviewed at Full or Interim Councils rather than the Planning Committee.
