Ward meetings

Councillor ward meetings are generally an opportunity for Councillors to meet informally with constituents over a range of issues which are not predetermined.

Ward meetings will relate only to a single ward and may involve either all ward councillors or a single ward councillor.

Ward Meetings will be organised at the request the ward councillor(s) of each ward who are acting on behalf of their constituents.

Ward meetings do not typically have a pre-set agenda prepared.
