Detail

This guide provides the public with practical information about attending meetings of a council’s executive and obtaining council documents.

It is designed to help the public know when they can attend such meetings and what documents and information are available to them, now that there are new national rules to make councils more transparent and accountable to their local communities.

It should also help councillors and officers to comply with these rules which are based on a presumption in favour of openness.
