The full council is made up of all 43 North Lincolnshire councillors. They meet as a full council about four or five times a year (or as required).  In line with the Constitution, the full council:

  • Sets the council’s overall policies and budgets. This includes setting council tax levels each year.
  • Approves the Code of Conduct for councillors and officers.
  • Adopts and agrees changes to the Constitution.
  • Takes decisions which the leader and cabinet, committees and panels do not have powers to make.
  • Agrees to a series of strategies and plans.
  • Encourages community engagement.

The council receives reports on other issues and the minutes of the council’s committees and panels.

Come along and see your elected representatives debating issues that concern you.
