Attending a Meeting

Committee Meetings

Meetings are held in the Town House, Broad Street, Aberdeen, either in the Council Chamber or one of the Committee rooms.  The Town House is the building on the corner of Broad Street and Queen Street.  If you are attending a meeting, you should enter the building from the Queen Street entrance.

The Council and its Committees meet once every eight weeks.

How to attend a meeting

The public are welcome to attend meetings of the Council and its various Committees and Sub Committees, except where confidential business is being discussed. Should you be interested in a specific Committee, you can register for notifications when the agenda, decisions and minutes are published.

Agendas for meetings will be published online the week before the meeting, and are available to view in the Central Library.

For meetings held in the Council Chamber, members of the public are required to sit in the public gallery which is located on the 3rd floor of the Town House. There is also public seating within the other Committee rooms. All rooms have disabled access.  When you arrive at the Town House, staff at reception will direct you to the appropriate room.  If you require special assistance in case of evacuation, please let us know before the start of the meeting or on arrival at the Town House.

After a meeting

Decisions taken by the Council or a Committee will be published online following the meeting. Draft and final minutes can also be viewed online.
