Leader and cabinet

Cabinet comprises the Leader and Deputy Leader and eight other Councillors. It is the part of the Council, which is responsible for most strategic decisions.

Decisions are either made by Cabinet, a committee of the Cabinet, individual members of the Cabinet or officers under powers delegated by Cabinet.

When major decisions are to be discussed or made, these are published in the Cabinet's forward plan (28 Day Notice).  Cabinet has to make decisions, which are in line with the Council's overall policies and budget.  If it wishes to make a decision, which is outside the budget or policy framework, this must be referred to the Council as a whole to decide.

Cabinet meetings are open to the public, except where personal or confidential matters are being discussed.
