The council carries out its business through committees of councillors and staff This allows subjects to be considered in more detail than is possible during full council meetings. Recommendations from the committees are then put to the full council for endorsement. The regular committees are: the Finance and General Purposes Committee; the Hall and Grounds Committee; and the Planning and Environment Committee. As there is relatively little business for the Planning and Environment Committee these matters are considered during the full council meetings.
Two other committees are not currently active. They are the Newsletter Committee and the Festival Village Committee.
