The three Regulatory Committees and one Joint Committee act and make decisions within their own areas of responsibility as set out in the Council's Constitution .
The majority of Regulatory Committees' decisions can be made without the need for Council to be involved. However, there are exceptions which require a matter to be referred to the Council for a final decision.
All committees are made up of Councillors reflecting the political make-up of the Council.
