Municipal Policy Committee

Bray Town Council currently has two Municipal Policy Committees. They are the Infrastructure, Planning and Development MPC and the Community, Cultural, Social and Environmental MPC.Each committee has six councillors and three sectoral representatives.

A calendar of MPC meetings should be agreedat the start of each year. MPC meetings should normally be held four times yearly at suitable times for all MPC members.

A special meeting of the committee may be called by the Cathaoirleach or by at least four members of the Committee.

MPC meetings should be conducted in a much less rigid and formal way than full Council meetings in order to create an informal and collaborative atmosphere that would allow honest views and opinions on policy issues.

Each MPC should have an annual work programme.

The MPC chair and relevant Meetings Administrator should meet well in advance of an MPC meeting to clarify the agenda for the forthcoming meeting and to agree on objectives and what they would like as expected outcomes.
