There is one other formal group details of which are recorded here – the Neighbourhood Plan Ad Hoc Advisory Committee, which reports to the Policy & Management Committee. Each standing committee of the Council may also appoint working groups which have a life of just a year and meet informally. The Council’s Committees each consist of between five and nineteen Town Councillors.
