The Council

The full Council comprises the 54 elected councillors from Kensington and Chelsea. It approves the budget and main plans and strategies for the Royal Borough. It is a major debating forum, with set piece debates at each meeting. These are suggested by councillors or selected from motions submitted by members of the public.

The major plans and strategies are presented to the Council in their final form, after the Cabinet and the relevant overview and scrutiny committee has considered them.

The Council meets every eight weeks, about seven times a year. Meetings are in public and the Mayor is the chairman.
