A visitor’s guide to Council meetings

Here you will find details of meetings of the Council, its committees and sub-committees together with the public agendas, reports and minutes relating to those meetings. Please note that agendas and reports do not necessarily reflect the final agreed position of the Council on any matter as only the minutes record the final decisions.

Committee Schedule

The Committee Schedules list all scheduled meetings for the current Committee Session and future Committee Sessions (where available)

Meeting Venues

Meetings of the main committees and a number of the sub-committees take place in the Council Chamber, Town House Haddington. The remainder of the meetings normally take place in the Saltire Rooms, John Muir House, Haddington. The Committee Schedule and meeting agenda indicate the venue for each meeting.


The public agendas and reports for meetings are normally available to view on line approximately 5 days prior to the meeting taking place. Minutes become available at a later date. To view Council and Committee Meetings on the website, select the committee of your choice and click on the relevant meeting dates.

Public or Private

East Lothian Council welcomes visitors to public meetings and encourages residents to engage in the democratic process.

Most Council meetings are open to the public but there are a number of meetings held in private either for legal reasons or for reasons of confidentiality. There are also occasions when public meetings have one or more items to discuss in private. Normally meeting agendas will indicate if a meeting is private or has private items.
Unless you have applied for, and been granted, permission you will not be able to speak at a meeting.
