Meetings of the Council, Committees, Boards etc are generally held
in the Tom Johnston Chambers, 12 Strathkelvin Place, Kirkintilloch.
The Chambers can accommodate approx 15 - 20 members of the
public in the public gallery.
Our Committee year runs from August until the end of the
following June (e.g. Aug 2010 - June 2011). The Council operates an
eight-weekly cycle of committee meetings. There are approximately
six committee cycles per committee year. In addition
sub-committees, boards and panels are called on an ad hoc (as and
when required) basis. Please remember to check for any changes or
alterations to strategic committee minutes made at the following
council meeting and recorded in the minute of that (full council)
Why would I use the system?
This system provides a great reference library of items
considered by the Council since 1996. This may be useful if you are
trying to find background information on a current topic or just
for general curiosity about current or previous Council
What can I search?
The majority of information on Council and service committees is
available through the minutes published to these pages. Currently
you can view minutes of all parent committees from 1996.
How do I use the system?
If you know what meeting you wish to view and the date it took
place, select the diary and turn to the appropriate page.
Select the entry and view the related documents. Alternatively
there is a powerful search facility within the system. It can
search for a single word(s) across all published records; it can
search all minutes if you know specific minute details (date,
committee meeting etc); or it can search for reports if the
information you have is specific report information (report number,
title etc). The published minutes and reports for each committee
are interlinked and you can move from a minute to related
reports/agenda and vice versa. The link is called related documents
and is usually at the foot of the document you're viewing.
However, the more information you have, then the search results
will be quicker and more specific.
Decide what you want to know and what you already have which may be
of some use.
Example - I would like to know about the Council's 21st Century
Government Plan. A search for "Plan" or
"Government" would reveal a substantial level of results including
the one you're looking for, however a search for "21st Century" may
be more specific, with "21st Century Government Plan" being the
optimum search and result. Once you have the result you're looking
for and have entered the document, select "Edit" and "Find (on this
page)" or CTRL + F, to find your search within that document.
