Parties are a sub group to the Standing Committees or Full Council who work on a
specific project. They can meet at any time and be made up of both Councillors
and non Councillors. They are flexible and informal, have no minutes or agendas
and can be any size. Working Parties are appointed as and when required to
investigate particular projects and once this investigation is complete and a
report delivered to the Committee which formed the Working Party that working
party is disbanded.
