FULL COUNCIL MEETINGS
There are 10 full council meetings year, all of which are open to the public. Meetings are generally held on the third Wednesday of the month at 6-8pm in the Beethoven Centre on Third Avenue W10. These meetings are where councillors make decisions on what the council does. The format of these meetings is necessarily formal, and it is only possible to discuss items set on an agenda, which is published online and on our noticeboard outside the Beethoven Centre three days in advance. However, members of the public may ask questions or make comments at the start. Please do come along! We’d love to have you there.
Council usually meets 10 times in a year – every month except August and December. Meetings are always publicly announced in advance and members of the public are encouraged to attend. Members of the public are entitled to speak at these meetings, subject to certain conditions (see Your rights). Council meetings take place on Wednesdays after 6pm and last no longer than 2 hours.
The agenda for each meeting is published, in the in the council documents section of this website and on the noticeboard outside the Beethoven Centre, on the Thursday during the previous week.
The record of a council meeting is called the ‘minutes’. The minutes of each of the community council’s meetings are available here, or for inspection by appointment at the council office.
Working Group Meetings
Working alongside the community council are several working groups. Made up of councillors and other resident volunteers, this is where local people get together to tackle issues that concern them. Working groups have no decision-making papers, but can make recommendations to the community council to take forwards. Working group meetings are informal and usually held in the evenings. QPCC’s current working groups are listed below. These groups are listed below. Visit about the Community Council to learn more about what each one does.
