Committee details

Overview and Scrutiny Committee

Purpose of committee

The Overview and Scrutiny Committee has the dual purpose of holding the Cabinet decision-makers to account and contributing to long-term policy development within the Council.

 

The Overview and Scrutiny Committee also monitors the decisions of Cabinet and Cabinet Leads and key decisions taken by officers that have been taken but not yet implemented. Non-Cabinet Councillors can ‘call-in’ these decisions to enable the Overview and Scrutiny Committee to consider whether the decision is appropriate. The Overview and Scrutiny Committee may recommend that the decision is reconsidered by decision maker.

 

Further details of the committee are set out in Part 1, Section 7, Part 2, Section E and Part 3, Overview and Scrutiny Committee, of the Council's Constitution.
