The Scrutiny Committee supports the work of
the Cabinet and the Council as a whole, allows citizens to have a
greater say in Council matters and will, where appropriate, consult
the public on matters of local concern. This leads to reports
and recommendations which advise the Cabinet and the Council on its
policies, budget and service delivery.
The Committee also monitors the decisions of
the Cabinet. The Committee can ‘call-in’ a
decision which has been made by the Cabinet but not yet implemented
and consider whether the decision is appropriate.
