Information about City Council

All 55 City Councillors meet together as the City Council.  The City Council agrees the over-arching policies and strategies of the Council, known as the ‘policy framework’, and sets the Council’s budget and the level of council tax.  It is also responsible for setting and amending the Council’s Constitution; electing and removing the Leader of the Council; and establishing and appointing the membership of the various committees of the Council.


Meetings are usually held in the Council House, Old Market Square and are chaired by the Lord Mayor.  Meetings are open to the public and members of the public can submit questions in advance for response at a City Council meeting.  Councillors submit petitions to the City Council on behalf of local people.


The City Council usually meets 6 times a year.
