The Council meeting is where all 55 Councillors discuss and decide the Council’s policy framework and budget. Certain other decisions are also reserved for the Council such as making changes to Medway’s constitution, determining electoral issues and dealing with matters which are not the responsibility of the Cabinet.
The Council meets about seven times a year and the Mayor presides over the meeting, ensuring that business is properly conducted. In addition to receiving reports from the Cabinet, Overview and Scrutiny Committees and Council officers, time is set aside for local people to ask questions and for Councillors to submit topics for debate, known as motions.
