Overview and scrutiny

Find out how your councillors can hold the mayor and cabinet (also known as the executive), officers and external organisations to account for the decisions that they make. ​

Scrutiny makes a difference. It improves the quality of local policies and decisions. It acts as a critical friend to the Council's executive – and to other organisations providing public services in the borough – by making recommendations to improve local services.
