Committee meeting diary
Northumberland County Council operates many committees who have a responsibility for a specific area of work. These committees scrutinise, advise, take decisions and also develop policy.
The forward plan contains items expected to be key issues for the cabinet over the next four months. It’s updated every month.
Committee papers are minutes, agendas and reports. Each set of documents is unique to the meeting they are prepared for. The agenda is the list of points to be discussed at a meeting.

Minutes are the record of what happened at a meeting. Minutes are kept as a draft until they have been approved by a subsequent meeting of the committee as a true record.

If complex matters are discussed at a meeting, officers prepare a report which explains the background to the proposals or to the situation being reported. Some reports include recommendations for action; others are simply for information. 
Agendas, reports and minutes prior to May 2013, and those of county council and district/borough councils before April 2009, can be provided on request.

However, this is subject to their availability under the provisions of the Local Government Act 1972.

If they involve the disclosure of exempt information as defined in part I of schedule 12A of the act, the public are not entitled to the information.

Exempt categories include:
  • information about individual people
  • certain economic, financial and legal details
  • negotiations and consultations
  • enactments
  • investigations into crime and disorder
