There will be a public participation session at the beginning of each, when people can speak for up to 3 minutes on any issue which falls within the Committees' remits, with the total session lasting a maximum of 15 minutes. The meetings are open to the public, although contributions from the public are legally restricted to the Public Participation item.
However, sometimes items need to be taken in private if the discussion involves disclosure of personal information or details of a future contract. The decisions taken in private sessions are public knowledge and will be included in the minutes.

The defibrillator at Kirkburton Health Centre has been re-located to an outside wall to facilitate its use at whatever time it is needed. No specialist training is needed to use the equipment - an informaiton session is being held by the Health Centre on Friday 3 October at 3.30 pm. If you live in the area, come along and have a look at how easy it is to use - it may help to save someone's life.
The costs of the re-location were covered jointly by Kirkburton Parish Council and Denby Dale & District Rotary Club.
Funding has also been agreed for the provision of additional defibrillators at various sites throughout the Parish or to re-locate existing equipment to the exterior of the building so that it is accessible all of the time. It should be noted that any equipment provided by the Parish Council will be in addition to that available from the NHS, and it is not subsidising NHS budgets.
The Council hopes to provide the first defibrillator within this financial year (which runs to March 2015), with additional ones being provided over the course of the next few years. The locations will be chosen in accordance with the greatest perceived need and on the advice of the West Yorkshire Ambulance Service.
As well as siting the equipment on the exterior of medical centres, the Council will also be looking at installing them on other buildings such as village halls, community centres, shops, public houses, sports clubs, etc. If you own or manage such a building in the Parish and you are prepared to discuss having the equipment installed, please get in touch.
