How to use the Agendas and Minutes website

This short guide explains how you can use the Agendas and Minutes website, where we publish agendas and minutes for governing body and local board meetings held in the current term (November 2016 - October 2019).

Go to the Agendas and Minutes website

View the Agendas and Minutes website

Filter what you can see

To view a different list of documents, use the dropdown menus to select the year, month and meeting you need and then click the "View" button.

The published documents are represented by the hyperlinks (the blue names of documents) in the Agenda, Attachments, Minutes, and Minutes Attachments columns.

We publish documents in both HTML and PDF (Adobe Acrobat) formats.

Use the navigation pane in Adobe Acrobat reader

If you save the PDF version of the agenda or minutes to your computer and open it in Adobe Reader rather than in your browser window, you can see the bookmarks for the document.

There are several hyperlinks for most items:

  • Recommendation
  • Minute
  • Attachments

Click on the links to navigate through the document.

The recommendation, attachment and minute links allow you to move to those parts of the agenda as well as additional documents.

Search across all documents

Use the Google custom search box, in the top right of the page, to perform full text searches across all published documents, whether they are currently displaying in the list or not.

You can type in a single word or a phrase.

Once you have typed in the word or phrase you are looking for, click on the magnifying glass icon to the right of the search box.

The results appear in a list below:

This search found the word 'alcohol' in 180 documents. Click on the blue hyperlinks to open the documents.

Note the reference to the word you are searching for from the search results before you open the document.

In this way you can use the navigation pane to move straight to where the word appears once you open the document.
