Committee details

Place Overview and Scrutiny Committee

Purpose of committee

This committee considers and holds to account the relevant Cabinet Members and Directors for the delivery of the council’s plans and financial strategy as they relate and impact on the Borough’s amenities, infrastructure, local economy, and development. Its focus will be on improvement in these areas to support the council’s recovery plans, including service transformation, financial and savings targets and asset management or disposal. It will have oversight and scrutiny of policy as it relates to local services, development and community well-being but will retain overall financial recovery in these areas as a priority. It will also challenge through constructive scrutiny the Cabinet’s proposals and plans and their impact and effectiveness of proposed improvements or changes on communities, and individuals.

 

There is one non-statutory co-opted Member on the Place Overview and Scrutiny Committee, who represents housing tenants’ interests across the borough.
