Committee details

Full Council

Purpose of committee

The county council comprises 84 councillors who all meet in full council at least six times a year.  All meetings are broadcast live on our website as part of our policy of bringing decision-making closer to the public.


The main role of the full council is:


  • to appoint the Leader
  • to approve the constitution and any amendments to it;
  • to determine policies that set the framework in which the county council carries out its functions; and
  • to set the county council's budget and Council Tax levels.


Further information about the Full Council can be found in the Constitution.
