5. How can I get a taste of what it would be like?

You are welcome to come and listen to a committee meeting.

Visit the Calendar of meetings page for details of future meetings.  You don't need to give notice - just come along to the Council's Customer Service Centre and they will direct you to the Committee room.  The Executive, Scrutiny, Planning and Licensing Committees normally start at 5.30pm and take place in the Civic Centre.  The meeting of the full Council starts at 6pm and takes place in the Guildhall.

Democratic Services (Committees) will be happy to talk to you about the role of Councillors and maybe put you in touch with one of the current Councillors. 

Further details can be obtained by calling 01392 265107 or emailing
