As well as meeting on a monthly basis the Council operates four committees covering various aspects of Council work.

Each Councillor sits on 2 committees and these meet, in general, on the second Monday in the month.

The Quarterly Finance Committee meetings tend to be later in the month due to the extra work required in preparing for these following a full Council meeting.

Each committee discusses business pertinent to its area of specialisation and passes pending decisions back to the full Council meetings for resolution.
