The Overview and Scrutiny Committee is responsible for various review and scrutiny functions, monitoring the work of the council to ensure that the needs of the community are understood and that decision-making is open and transparent.
What is scrutiny?
The scrutiny function enables members to hold the cabinet and senior managers to account. It also enables members to review policy and its implementation and consider any matters which affect the community which the council represents.
How does it work?
The function of scrutiny is that of a "critical friend" and its focus is on strategic issues, not the day to day running of services.
