The Operations and Place Shaping Board is appointed by the Council to examine the administration and policies of the Operations and Place Shaping Directorate and the performance of the associated commissioned and partnership services.
The Board is one of 3 Scrutiny Boards established by the Council.
The Board chooses its own subjects of inquiry on services within this Directorate which may include topics ranging from the costal partnership to parking and environmental subjects. Depending on the subject, external deadlines, and the amount of evidence the Board may decide to refer an inquiry that may last for several months to a panel; other inquiries may simply consist of a single session by the Board. Any recommendations arising from inquiries by the Board or its Panels are submitted to the Cabinet or the Council.
