Committee details

Scrutiny Programme Committee

Purpose of committee

The main aim of scrutiny is to act as a ‘critical friend’ to the Cabinet and other decision makers in order to promote better services, policies and decisions. Working in a similar way to parliamentary select committees, overview and scrutiny involves councillors who are not in the cabinet. The Scrutiny Programme Committee is responsible for coordinating the work of scrutiny which will hold the Council’s Executive to account and examine the work of all Council departments as well as other public services.


In line with our Compliance Notice the Agenda and Minutes of our meetings are published bilingually.
