Committees and Appointments

All Meetings take place in the Council Chamber, Town Hall, Market Place,

Wincanton, BA9 9LD, unless otherwise stated:

Working Parties - Working Parties do not have any delegated decision making powers.  Their role is to obtain information, including cost implications where applicable, and to discuss and agree recommendations, for presentation in the form of a report back to Full Council.

Committees - All decisions taken by committees have to be ratified at the next meeting of the Full Council, before they can be implemented, to ensure that all members of the Town Council have the opportunity to comment on every decision taken.

Ratification at Full Council - The reports of all committee meetings are presented to the next meeting of the Full Council for ratification.  Any member who is not in agreement, and did not participate in the decision making process, can identify the reasons for objecting to the decision taken and table a proposal requesting that the matter should be referred back to the committee for further consideration.  The proposal will need to be seconded and supported by a majority of the members present for this to happen.
