Committee details


Purpose of committee

Legislation has been passed that allows Council's to conduct Committee meetings remotely. Press and Public can contact the Democratic Services Officer for further details, and meetings will be broadcast on Facebook Live.


The Executive is responsible for most of the day to day decisions of the Council which are not delegated to officers.  It is made up of the Leader of the Council, Portfolio Holders (also known as lead councillors) who have responsibilities for various service areas, and other councillors.


It develops policies and strategies for approval by Council, exercises overall control of resources within the Council’s policies and budget, and recommends the level of council tax to the Council.  It also considers any matters specifically referred by a Scrutiny Committee.  All “key decisions” to be discussed or made are published in the Executive’s Forward Plan in so far as they can be anticipated.
