Overview and Scrutiny Committee
Purpose of committee
The Overview and Scrutiny Committee is the Council’s overarching scrutiny committee. The Committee is responsible for overseeing and scrutinising the whole range of the Council’s functions and responsibilities, as well as other public service providers’ work and its impact on the local community. The Committee’s remit also extends to all matters which impact on the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of those who live, work, study or use services in the borough. It is also responsible for undertaking oversight and co-ordinating activities of the scrutiny function as a whole.
The Committee comprises the Chair, three Vice-Chairs and an additional five members for each meeting (the Committee’s membership at each meeting will comprise nine councillors, plus relevant co-opted members).
In addition the Committee will establish scrutiny commissions to undertake reviews of specific matters identified in the scrutiny work programme or as a result of Overview and Scrutiny Committee meetings.
