Agenda Item No


The Vale of Glamorgan Council


Cabinet Meeting: 10 February, 2014


Report of the Leader


Timetable of Meetings: May 2014 - May 2015


Purpose of the Report

1.         To consider a draft timetable of meetings for the period May 2014 - May 2015.


That the timetable of meetings for May 2014 - May 2015, as set out in Appendix A be approved, subject to any future changes in arrangements for meetings deemed appropriate by the Mayor of the Council or the relevant Committee Chairman.

Reason for the Recommendation

To approve / publish a calendar of meetings for the 2014/15 municipal year.



2.         The current timetable of meetings expires with the Annual Meeting on 14th May, 2014.  Members are required, therefore, to consider a draft timetable for the ensuing municipal year.

Relevant Issues and Options

3.         In most respects, the draft timetable reflects current arrangements.  As in previous years, various recesses have been incorporated during August, October and at Christmas and Easter.  As a result of the recesses, and given that officers have been asked to avoid arranging certain committee meetings during school holidays, on occasions, cycles will vary and / or more than one meeting will occur on the same day.  Arrangements for meetings of the Welsh Church Act Estate and Trust Committees will be dealt with separately.
