This page lists the meetings for People Overview and Scrutiny Committee.
(Previously known as
People Overview Committee and prior to 2017 the
Young People’s Scrutiny
Scrutiny (also known as Overview and Scrutiny)
is vital to the work of the Council and its partners. It helps to develop policy, improve the
performance of the Council, and holds the Cabinet and Portfolio
Holders to account for their decisions.
Scrutiny looks at Council services as well as services provided by
other local agencies and organisations.
There are currently 5 formal scrutiny committees all with a
membership of 10 councillors.
Scrutiny Committees are made up of
non-executive councillors (councillors who are not on the
Cabinet). They work in a variety of
formal and informal ways to gather evidence from officers, the
Cabinet, service users, expert witnesses, the public and external
partners on particular issues and topics. At the conclusion of their work, they can make
recommendations to the Cabinet and Portfolio Holders about how to
improve services for local people.
Up to date information on the activity of
scrutiny committees can be found via the meeting agendas and
