Information about Corporate Overview and Scrutiny Committee

This committee considers and holds to account the Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member for Finance, Chief Executive and Director of Finance (Sec 151) for the delivery of the council improvement and recovery plans and financial strategy. Its focus includes Council budget, medium term financial plan, capital programme and budget monitoring. This committee also provides scrutiny oversight of transformation plans, assets disposal and disinvestments. Additionally, the committee provides constructive challenge to Cabinet on organisational change and development of council policy, corporate plan and improvement plans to add value, through early pre-decision scrutiny and shaping. It also takes account of community impact of corporate and financial plans. Matters that are considered cross-cutting and which may affect more than one scrutiny committee will, by agreement of committee chairs be referred to the Corporate Scrutiny Committee, to avoid duplication or the issue being overlooked.
