      NB working groups meet in informal non public meetings to discuss proposals to report back to full council. Reports are presented at full council meetings in the background papers. A small number of groups are able to make decisions (pre agreed by council) through a delegation to the clerk in liaison with the working group members. These are reported back to full council periodically as updates to original decisions either via the group or via the clerks report.
