The Scrutiny and Overview Committee consists of non-Executive members (those who are not members of the Cabinet) and is appointed on a proportional basis (with political groups represented in the same proportion as on the whole Council).
It does not have any decision-making powers, but monitors the performance of the Leader and Cabinet and scrutinises services and policies throughout the district.
Members of the public are allowed to speak at meetings of the Overview and Scrutiny Panel. This allows members of the public to share their views on items that are due to be discussed by the Panel. Click on the link below for more information:
