Council meetings and minutes

Dumfries and Galloway Council records and publishes all decisions taken and recommendations made by the local authority and its committees and panels. In addition to the minutes from meetings within the next 7 days as well as reports considered by each committee are also available.

Agendas, reports and minutes

You can view the council diary and access information about committees and the decisions our Council makes.

Meeting schedule

Members of the public are welcome to attend committee meetings. However, the public will be excluded if there are confidential or exempt items on the agenda.

The Council Diary contains the date and time of all meetings of Committees, Sub-Committees, Area Committees, Licensing Boards, Panels and Seminars in Dumfries and Galloway which take place on a fixed rota cycle culminating in a Full Council Meeting.

Audio recordings

We audio record committee meetings of Dumfries and Galloway Council which are held in the Council Hall and make these available to everyone via 'You Tube' within 14 days after the date of the meeting. Recordings will be available on the website for a period of 6 months after broadcast and on the Council 'You Tube' Channel for six years. The recordings will be retained by the Council for a period of 6 years from the date of the meeting.


While an audio recording of a meeting may be produced, the minutes of the meeting are still the formal legal record of that meeting and of any decisions taken.

It will be at the discretion of the council or Committee as to which meetings are recorded. Due to technical limitations it will not be possible to record meetings outwith the Council Headquarters, English Street, Dumfries.

Copies of the recordings will be made available online and no transcripts will be provided other than in exceptional circumstances.

The Proper officer can decide not to publish a recording, or part thereof if they consider it necessary to do so because all or part of the content of the recording is or is likely to be in breach of any statutory provision or if there is inappropriate language or defamation. It is anticipated that this need should only arise in exceptional circumstances.
