South Hams Council

Purpose of committee

Meetings of Full Council consist of all 31 District Councillors representing the twenty wards of South Hams District Council.


A full list of scheduled meetings can be found below. You can also find report and minutes of previous meetings on this page.


The full list of Council functions and responsibilities can be found in our Constitution Delegation Scheme (See ‘Our Constitution’). The main responsibilities are to agree the annual budgets, agree new policies and changes to existing ones, and determine the Council’s priorities.


Full Council meets approximately 4 times a year, but can meet more often if the need arises.


Meetings are held on a Thursday, mostly at 2.00 p.m. in the Council Chamber at Follaton House, Totnes. Members of the public are welcome to attend and listen to the debate, but are not allowed to speak or ask questions, unless they have submitted a Question in line with the Scheme of Public Questions.


Full Council meetings are live streamed on the internet. You can watch the proceedings and see recordings of previous meetings on our YouTube channel.
