In this section you can access a wide range of information and documents relating to the council’s decision making processes and find out about forthcoming Council meetings.
Please note that, in terms of official Council committee business, the recess period has been extended and will now begin on Friday 20 March 2020 and will last until Monday 27 April 2020.
Any urgent decisions during this recess period will be made by the Council's Leadership Advisory Panel. The Panel is a formal Committee comprising the Leaders of the SNP Group, Labour Group, Conservative Group, Green Group and Scottish Liberal Democrat Group and is chaired by the Council Leader. This is in line with the latest advice and official guidance from the UK and Scottish Governments and will be kept under review as the situation develops.
You can find the agendas, minutes and officer reports of previous meetings and dates of future meetings in Council and committee meetings.

We are committed to providing you with an open and visible decision-making process. At many Council meetings we make decisions on issues which touch on local and city-wide concerns. Our webcasts allow you to see how we reach these decisions, without having to attend in person. Watch council debates online on the Council's webcast site.
The City of Edinburgh Council operates under a set of documents that govern and guide the decisions made by the Council and its officers and ensures that robust, clear and accountable organisational frameworks are in place. These are available for download from the Governance Document Library.
