Information about Overview & Scrutiny Committee

This Committee scrutinises a range of policy, financial and performance issues and makes reports and recommendations to the Cabinet or full Council.

 

The Committee also scrutinises the implementation of the community and corporate performance plans, as well as investigating broad policy matters, including reviewing decisions taken or to be taken by the cabinet or Chief Officers under delegated powers.

 

The Committee is responsible for co-ordinating the consideration of ‘member call-ins' where a Councillor requests that a particular issue is considered.

 

There are also four Scrutiny Panels, which undertake detailed scrutiny of the issues falling within their portfolios -

·  Health

·  Neighbourhoods and Renewal

·  Community, Leisure and Environment

·  Education and Children's Services
