Full Council and Committee Meetings
The government legislation enabling the Town Council to hold remote meetings ended on 6 May 2021. Therefore, Town Council meetings must now be held in person with councillors required to be at the meeting in order to vote.
Due to the size of the Town Council and the availability of large meeting rooms, it will not be possible at the present time to admit members of the public due to social distancing requirements. Meetings will be livestreamed on the Council’s YouTube channel and links will be posted on this website on the day of each meeting.
If members of the public wish to ask a question within public participation, these must be submitted in writing to the Town Clerk no later than 12 noon on the day of the meeting.
Full Council meets once a month throughout the year, usually on a Wednesday, at 6.00 pm. Public and the Press are invited to Full Council meetings as are County and District Councillors representing the Malvern wards. All members of the Council are expected to attend if possible.
The agenda is available three clear working days before the meeting. Only items on the agenda may be discussed at the meeting although members of the public are welcome to speak during Public Participation on any matter relating to Malvern Town.

Standing orders are the written rules of a local council and are essential to regulate the proceedings of a meeting. A council may also use standing orders to confirm or refer to various internal organisational and administrative arrangements. The standing orders of a council are not the same as the policies of a council but standing orders may refer to them.
Malvern Town Council’s current Standing Orders, adopted 3 October 2018, can be seen here.
