Council

Purpose of committee

Council meetings involve all ninety nine of the City’s elected members and are chaired by the Lord Mayor.

 

Somewhere in the region of six ordinary Council meetings are held each year, usually commencing at 1.30 p.m. on a Wednesday. Business conducted at an ordinary Council meeting includes:

 

  • The receipt of deputations*
  • Question time
  • The receipt of decisions and consideration of recommendations from the various Boards, Panels and Committees
  • Consideration of motions submitted by individual members
  • The approval of matters reserved to the Council in the Budget and Policy Framework including the budget and Council Plan

 

The Annual meeting of the Council, usually held on an evening in late May, elects the Lord Mayor for the municipal year and determines all committee and decision making arrangements for the year. 

 

Occasionally the Council holds special meetings to appoint honorary aldermen or honorary freemen of the City.

 

*It should be noted that anyone interested in bringing a deputation to a Council meeting should apply in writing with a copy of their proposed speech to kevin.tomkinson@leeds.gov.uk at least 14 clear days prior to the meeting. 

 

Please note that the Council will try all means possible to enable all interested parties to be present at Full Council, Executive Board and Committee meetings where decisions take place.  However due to the limited seating capacity within the Civic Hall meeting rooms, the Council regrets that access for all may not always be possible.
