The Council meet at least twice a month in the Council Chamber, usually the first Wednesday of the month are the Committee meetings, comprising of General Purpose Committee, where such business as Anglia in Bloom, dealings with the BCKLWN and future events are considered, Finance Committee where employment, donation requests and all other finance matters are discussed, Town Hall Management Committee which deals with all aspects of the Town Hall such as bookings, health & safety, improvements and the Tourist Information Centre management etc., and Quality Council which deals with town centre markets, land development and localism.
The Friday the week following these committee meetings is when the full Council meet, here representatives from the Borough Council, County Council and Norfolk Constabulary make representation.
