The Committees and Sub-Committees of the Town Council all operate under a scheme of delegation each having their own Terms of Reference.

Filey Town Council 2019-20 Membership & Representation

The Planning Committee and the Appeal Hearing Panel have full delegated power to act on behalf of the Town Council as a corporate body whereas all the other Committees and Sub-Committees have to make recommendations to the full council if decisions are outside of their scope or remit as detailed in their individual Terms of Reference.

Any recommendations are then voted upon by the full council at the next available full council meeting.

The scheme of delegation is detailed in the Council’s Standing Orders (No 4)
