Full Council consists of all 50 elected councillors and usually meets five times a year to take major budgetary and policy framework decisions. The Council must consider certain high-level strategic plans, including the Crime and Disorder Reduction Strategy, Community Strategy, and Local Development Framework. In February Full Council agrees the annual revenue and capital budgets which sets the level of Council Tax for the forthcoming Municipal Year (from May to April).
