From this section you will be able to access information about each
of the committees of Ramsey Town Council, see which councillors are on each
committee and view the agenda and minutes of each meeting as and
when they become available.
The general business of the council is determined at regular
meetings where all the councillors attend, these are referred to as
"Full Council" meetings and the items on the agenda of such can be
varied. Depending upon the amount of work and scale of
responsibility that the council has to undertake some items of regular
business, for example planning matters, are dealt with by a specific
sub-committee whose meetings only address that particular subject.
The number of members on a sub-committee can vary from the entire
council to just a small group of councillors. The number of
sub-committees created by a council is under their control and
generally related to how much business that each committee has to
deal with, some rural councils may not require to create any
being able to conduct all business at the full council meetings. The
number of committees may vary in relation to the current workload.
Details of the committees and the councillors that are current
members of each committee are available from the menu on the left under the sub-title
This document is issued prior to a meeting and lists the items
that may be discussed at that meeting. Although these documents are
quite accurate they may not include all items that will be
discussed. Most meetings always have an "Any other Business"
section, usually just prior to the meeting being concluded, and this
may raise points that are not predicted on the agenda.
Meeting Minutes are a legal record of the items that were raised at
a particular meeting. The minutes also record the decision of the
council regarding each item and any other action that may be
required. This may mean that the item is simply received and noted,
others require further research and information to appear again at a
subsequent meeting, or the council may take a decision to agree a
response to a particular item.
Details of the committee meetings both past and future including
their agenda and minutes (if available) are available from the menu
on the left under the sub-title "Council Meetings".
Planning applications for Ramsey are managed by the
Development Management Service (External link will open in a new
window) of Huntingdonshire District Council and you may view the
detail of past (from 2002) and current applications on the
Public Access Information System maintained by the district
Agenda and Minute Archive
Where possible agenda and minutes are displayed in the sections
above alongside the committee meetings to which they relate however
if a particular committee is disbanded due to council restructuring
this would no longer be possible therefore the archive provides
access to all these documents regardless of the current status of a
particular committee. (NOTE: This item is not yet available)
