Annual Attendance Statistics
At its meeting on 17 February 2015, the Council agreed that Members meeting attendance statistics should be published on a quarterly and annual basis.
With effect from 2015/16, any Member who fails to attend 75% of those meetings to which they have been appointed may be subject to sanctions. These sanctions include the potential for a Member to be voluntarily requested to return a proportion of their basic allowance.
