They have an advisory role - except in those areas where Council has given committees responsibility for particular tasks and/or authority to act on the Council's behalf.

Our committees report to Council on the performance of those activities that fall within their areas of activity. They also bring up any issues of concern, or suggestions for improvement.

What are the committees?

At the moment, we have three committees.

  • Audit & Risk Assurance Committee

  • HR & Remuneration Committee

  • Capital Committee

In addition to our Committees, four Advisory Groups also report to Council:

  • Equalities Monitoring Group

  • Welsh Language Monitoring Group

  • Future Generations Monitoring Group

  • Wales at Venice Advisory Committee

All committees are made up of Council Members and co-opted individuals, and operate under specific terms of reference (you can click on these below).
