Overview and Scrutiny Committees

Overview and Scrutiny committees are the monitoring body for council and councillor performance. They also make recommendations to the council and Cabinet on future projects.

For information about current Overview and Scrutiny Committee Meetings please visit the Your Council pages.

Members of the community are welcome to attend meetings and can ask questions (previously submitted) of the committee. 

Each Overview and Scrutiny Committee has 10 councillors sitting on it, politically proportionate to the overall political balance of the full council. Members of the Cabinet cannot serve on these committees.

The Committees meet regularly over the year and can co-opt non-voting members (representing organisations, groups or members of the public with a special interest) onto the committee for individual items or meetings.
