Council has traditionally appointed Councillors to a range of internal and external committees for the period of one year. Potential appointments were considered and discussed at Council Briefings earlier this month. The committees are those which were relevant at the time of discussion and can be reviewed as required throughout the year. The appointments are also reviewed annually at an open meeting of Council to ensure appropriate representation and contribution by Councillors.
