Council

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.

Council meetings are normally held at Church Square House, 30 – 40 High Street Scunthorpe. They are open to the public.  Please note currently all meetings are virtual meetings on Microsoft Teams until further notice.
