Attending council meetings

The public are welcome to attend meetings of the council and its various committees and sub-committees, except where confidential business is being discussed. 

Members of the public who wish to attend public meetings do not need to arrange this in advance. Times of committees meetings vary and can be checked in the schedule of meetings.

Where and when meetings take place

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.


Until further notice, meetings of the Council and its public committees and sub-committees are being held remotely.  The webcast of recent public meetings can be viewed at the following link: Home - East Lothian Council Webcasting (
