Scrutiny Committees

There are three scrutiny committees, and their main roles are to give advice to the Cabinet, and to review and challenge cabinet decisions. They also consider broad policy issues and make recommendations to the Cabinet and Council.

Below you will find links to details about each of the Council’s Scrutiny Committee, along with links to copies of their Annual Reports and other reports prepared by the committees. 

The Scrutiny Committees are keen to encourage members of the public to engage with the scrutiny process and suggest topics that may benefit from being examined by Scrutiny.
