Defeated motion - can it be overruled?

0 votes
Evening all. Can anyone please help?
If a motion/proposal is put to the vote at Committee level and is voted against by a majority, can that motion/proposal then be re-discussed and voted on again at full council level when the minutes are submitted at that next full council meeting?

I hope that makes sense.

That depends on the detail of the terms of reference for the committee. If the role of the council is to approve the minutes and/or ratify the recommendations, that is all they can do.

Don't forget that you also could have the standing order item that prevents revisiting decisions within 6 months that also might come into play.
