Council meetings

Restrictions are easing, but you must still remember: Hands. Face. Space. Fresh air. Get the latest information about coronavirus.

We hold regular meetings of the full council to consider council business. Full council means all elected Members. The agendas and reports for full council meetings are available online before the meeting and are available for anyone to view.

Council meetings are taking place virtually (online) until further notice, due to coronavirus restrictions. They will be broadcast live on the Middlesbrough Council Live Facebook group.

Council questions

Meetings where members of the public can ask questions are clearly indicated in the 'Full council meetings' table above.

A question may only be asked if it has been received no later than 5pm, 7 clear working days before the day of the meeting. The question must be sent in writing or by email to the Monitoring Officer.

Each question must state the name and address of the person asking the question. You must also name the Executive member or Committee Chair who you'd like to answer the question. Otherwise the question will either be answered by the elected Mayor, or the Executive member or Committee Chair chosen by the elected Mayor.

To put forward a question at a council meeting, please contact:
Post: Middlesbrough Council, PO Box 503, Town Hall, Middlesbrough, TS1 9FX

Agendas, reports, and minutes

Agendas, reports and minutes of committees are available via Modern.Gov. The system is updated regularly and relevant information is added as soon as it becomes available. ModernGov can also be used to check the members of a particular committee.

You can now download the Modern.Gov app, which lets you view, annotate, and download committee meeting papers. You can also decide which committees you're interested in and get automatic updates when new information is published for the committee. The Modern.Gov app is available to download on your phone or tablet from the Google Play Store or the App Store.

We do not accept responsibility for any losses as a result of relying on the information shown.
