What Is Full Council?

Full Council meetings are a forum where councillors can exercise their representative function and one which can underpin policy formulation and performance review.

It deals with matters such as:​​

  • approving the council’s policy framework.

  • agreeing the council’s Budget and setting the Council Tax Precept.

  • making decisions referred to it by sub-committees.

  • adopting and changing Standing Orders.


In February each year it meets to approve the Council’s budget for the forthcoming financial year and sets the Council Tax Precept.  It elects the Mayor of the council every four years and the Mayor and Deputy Mayor at its 'Mayor-Making' Meeting in May.

All Councillors attend Full Council and meetings are chaired by the Mayor of the Council.

What is Mayor Making? 


*Each year, at a meeting in May, a new Mayor and Deputy Mayor for Downham Market are elected by the Councillors.  The Mayor Making meeting is also known as the Annual Town Council meeting.
