'Full Council' is the big formal meeting held each month, with the Mayor presiding and - hopefully - the full set of councillors attending. TCBC webcasts all their meetings, but I sometimes write up an overview of the meeting too.
For the most part full council is a show piece, giving formal ratification to decisions which have already been hashed out in committee or political meetings. Sometimes they can inspire genuine and vocal debate however, which is when the Chair needs to keep things on track. I've been chairing full council since May 2017 and it has given me a whole new appreciation for the work chairs do!
