The 38 members of the Council meet together in the Council Chamber at approximately six weekly intervals. The Council meets under the Chairmanship of the Mayor.
The Mayor controls the debates and makes rulings on any matters that cause dispute during the meetings.
Honorary Aldermen (who play no part in formal Council meetings) may also present.
There are also facilities available for the press.
The Councillors sit in the body of the Chamber. As the Council is divided into political groups, the members of each group will sit together in agreed sections of the Chamber
