The minutes on this website have been ratified by the Town Council and signed by the Mayor on behalf of the Town Council accordingly.

Once signed they become a legally binding document, recording the accurate official business transacted by the Town Council.

The minutes can therefore be produced in a court of law if required or requested.

Summaries posted on other websites from Town Council meetings are strictly the views of the individual, and should not be construed as a true and accurate record of Town Council proceedings.
