West Berkshire Council

Committees and Decision Making

West Berkshire Council provides services to local people, agrees policies which affect the district and also acts as a community leader. To make sure we do this in the right way we use a transparent, but formal, system to make our decisions. 

The majority of decisions are made by councillors elected by local residents. This is done either through the Executive Committee, through one of the support committees, or by all 43 councillors at full meetings of Council. Individual councillors can also make formal decisions and these are called Individual Executive Member Decisions

You can find a full list of committees, here.
