Town Council Meetings

Full Council & Committees

Full Council is the ultimate decision making body of the Council and is chaired by the Town Mayor. It has full authority to decide on any matter concerning Council business though generally the actual business matters will have been delegated to a Committee.

In addition to committees, we sometimes have ad hoc working groups. These groups are formed for specific tasks, like ensuring the success of our Neighbourhood Plan. Unlike committees, these groups welcome participation from members of the public and stakeholder organisations who have expertise or a vested interest in the project.

For more information about our committees, including  membership and terms of reference, please visit our  Committees Page.

Recording at Meetings

Under the Openness of Local Government Bodies Regulations 2014, filming, photographing and making an audio recording of all public meetings is permitted.  Please read the guidelines we have prepared to enable any type of recording to take place with minimal disruption to the Council meeting. 

Meeting Dates

The dates of our all of our council meetings, along with convenient links to access minutes, reports, and agendas, can be found on our meetings calendar.

Please note that this calendar is a new addition, starting from 25th May, 2025, and will only display upcoming meetings. If you’re looking for information on council meetings prior to this date, you can access them on our archived meetings page.

Stay informed and engaged with Todmorden’s local governance by exploring the resources available through our meeting calendar. We’re committed to transparency and accessibility in our decision-making process, and this tool is just one way we’re working to keep our community informed.

Public Participation

Council and committee meetings are normally held on Wednesday evenings, in the Town Hall  at 7.30 pm. 

Members of the public are welcome to attend all council and committee meetings.  A small number of meetings are closed to the public due to the nature of the business being discussed, for example the Staffing Committee.

A public participation period is set aside at the start of each meeting during which members of the public may comment or ask questions regarding any matter on the agenda.

The public and press may be asked to leave a meeting during discussion of some matters.  Those matters are defined in law.

If you would like to speak at a council or committee meeting you must contact the Clerk of the meeting at least 48 hours in advance of the meeting.
