The decision making process of the Council is informed by various committees reporting back to the full Council. In turn, each committee may form sub-committees (working groups) to look into prescribed areas and research options to inform its parent committee, and ultimately the full Council.
Councillors are assigned to committees at the Annual Meeting of the Town Council which is normally held in May.
The Town Council has the opportunity to comment on all Planning applications within the Bracknell Town area prior to their being considered by the Bracknell Forest Borough Council Planning Committee, where the final decisions on permission are made. Read more about the planning committee and see schedule of meetings.
Environmental Services Committee
The committee oversees the management of the Town Council’s recreation grounds, play areas and pavilions and is responsible for establishing future work plans for play area renewal and refurbishment. Environmental issues are also considered by the committee. Read more about the environmental services committee and see schedule of meetings.
Strategy & Finance Committee
The committee recommends and monitors the Town Council’s budget and advises on financial management as well as other matters which do not fall within the remit of the Environmental Services Committee. Read more about the strategy and finance committee and see schedule of meetings.
The Staffing Committee has delegated authority to consider issues, make enquiries and make responses on behalf of Bracknell Town Council in respect of the areas for which it has responsibility, including to the staff establishment, job descriptions, pay scales, personnel policies, training and other terms and conditions where appropriate. Read more about the staffing committee and see schedule of meetings.
