To comply with this requirement and facilitate access to the information, the Council will be publishing these decisions under “ Executive Key Decisions”. You can obtain a complete list of the notices by clicking on the PDF link above each list of items. In addition, the Regulations, stipulate that at least 28 days’ notice should be given of the intention to hold any meeting or part in private.
