Advisory Committees

The role of Advisory Committees is to progress the Council’s day to day service delivery and to develop strategy.

Advisory Committees are not empowered to make decisions on behalf of the Council unless the Council gives consent at a full meeting.

The work of Advisory Committees is governed by Terms of Reference which can be found by clicking on the following link:- https://www.copythorne.org.uk/policies-procedures-governance/

Copythorne Parish Council currently has five Advisory Committees:-

  • Finance Meets quarterly (and extra as required)
  • Five year Plan Meets quarterly (and extra as required)
  • Flooding Meets quarterly (and extra as required)
  • Media & Publicity Meets quarterly (and extra as required)
  • Personnel & Governance Meets half yearly (and extra as required)

From September 2020 meetings of the Advisory Committees will be open to the public to attend and observe.

Unlike full meetings of the Council, there is no public session within the meetings which means the public cannot speak unless invited to do so by the Chair.

Detailed below against each of our five Advisory Committees are the agenda (with details of how to attend/join the meeting); any supplementary documents to be discussed (from Sept 2020 onwards); and notes of the meeting.
