Attendance summary

Attendance records at Council and committee meetings for Councillors can be found below.

The attendance records do not reflect councillors' other commitments, which can have a significant workload and time commitment attached. Many councillors, in particular Cabinet Members and Committee Chairs, attend a wide range of other meetings and events. Councillors also have an important ward role in representing constituents and answering their concerns. The amount of time that councillors spend on non-committee related work is not recorded.

It should be noted that attendance at meetings may be affected by personal circumstances, such as bereavement or ill health. Unless the Council has given a dispensation for non-attendance in accordance with Section 85(1) of the Local Government Act 1972, a councillor who fails to attend a single meeting throughout a six month period shall cease to hold the office of councillor.
