Council and Committee Meetings

The Council has the following committees:

Dates and times of these meetings can be found in the calendar. All meetings are normally held during the day and take place in the Council Offices in Hailsham.

Agendas and Minutes for the meetings are available online going back to 2001.

The public are welcome to attend these committees. Only meetings, or parts of meetings where confidential or other restricted information is being discussed are not open to the public.


The Council’s Constitution sets out how the Council operates, how decisions are made and the procedures which are followed to ensure that these decisions are efficient, transparent and accountable to local people. Some of these processes are required by law, while others are a matter for the Council to choose, The Constitution is reviewed by the Council each year.
