They have an advisory role - except in those areas where Council has given committees responsibility for particular tasks and/or authority to act on the Council's behalf.
Our committees report to Council on the performance of those activities that fall within their areas of activity. They also bring up any issues of concern, or suggestions for improvement.
What are the committees?
At the moment, we have six committees.
Audit & Risk Assurance Committee
HR & Remuneration Committee
Future Generations Committee
Strategic Equality Committee
Welsh Language Committee
In addition to our Committees, one Advisory Group also reports to Council:
Wales at Venice Advisory Committee
All committees are made up of Council Members and co-opted individuals, and operate under specific terms of reference (you can click on these below).
