The Scrutiny Committee supports the work of
the Cabinet and the Council as a whole. The Scrutiny Committee has
no executive authority; its work involves formulating and
developing policy proposals which it can then submit to the Cabinet
for a decision. In exceptional circumstances the Scrutiny Committee
can ‘call in’ (conduct a review of) a decision of the Cabinet. The
Scrutiny Committee is appointed by the Council from amongst its
members, but cannot include members of the Cabinet. Meetings of the
Scrutiny Committee are open to members of the public.
The Scrutiny Committee meets around eight
times per year. To find documents for any meeting of the Scrutiny
Committee, select the date of the meeting from the menu on the left
of this page. Agendas, minutes, reports and information sheets can
be found in the related links section at the bottom right of the
webpage for each meeting.
