Outside and Internal bodies

There are a number of organisations which are independent from the council, but where the council has representation.

The council provides admininstration support for some of these bodies - and for those you can find links to meetings and agendas

To find the contact details for the council’s representative on a particular outside body please follow the relevant link.

Members of the Council are appointed each year by Full Council or the Leader of the Council to sit on internal positions and Council Committees. As least every four years the Council or the Leader of the Council appoint members to internal, joint and outside bodies. In some cases, these positions attract Special Responsibility Allowances or receive remuneration from the body they are appointed to. All activities undertaken by the member in the course of these appointments are classed as approved duties for the purposes of the scheme.
