What are minutes and agendas?
An agenda is a document that's used to:
- set the time and place of an upcoming meeting
- list what will be discussed during that meeting
In some cases, an agenda might come with other documents that are relevant to the meeting. For example, a council officer might:
- write a professional report about one of the items on the agenda
- 'attach' it to the agenda so that councillors can read it
Minutes are a written record of what happened during a meeting. They usually include notes about:
- points that were raised or debated
- decisions that were taken
