Full Council and Committee Meetings

Following recent changes in legislation, Town Councils are now able to hold remote meetings.

Therefore during the current period and in line with government health guidelines, all Town Council meetings will be held via Zoom for the forseeable future.  Agendas and reports will be shown on this website in the normal way under each committee heading, with a link for the press and public to join these meetings if they wish.



Full Council meets once a month throughout the year, usually on a Wednesday, at 6.00 pm, currently via Zoom.  Public and the Press are invited to Full Council meetings as are County and District Councillors representing the Malvern wards.  All  members of the Council are expected to attend if possible.

The agenda is available three clear working days before the meeting.  Only items on the agenda may be discussed at the meeting although members of the public are welcome to speak during Public Participation on any matter relating to Malvern Town.

Next Full Council meeting:

Wednesday 5 August 2020, This meeting will be conducted via Zoom and details on how to join the meeting will be published nearer the time.

Standing orders are the written rules of a local council and are essential to regulate the proceedings of a meeting.  A council may also use standing orders to confirm or refer to various internal organisational and administrative arrangements.  The standing orders of a council are not the same as the policies of a council but standing orders may refer to them.

Malvern Town Council's current Standing Orders, adopted 3 October 2018, can be seen here.
