The Council, some times referred to as Full Council, is when all 11 councillors meet to take decisions. This is the highest decision making body (outside of a Parish Assembly) and some decisions, such as setting the precept, can not be delegated. Others however can be delegated either to Committees, or the Clerk.
Once a year in May it holds it’s Annual Council Meeting which elects the Chairman of the council and appoints members to committees and external bodies.
It meets roughly once a month, usually on the last Monday.
