How we make decisions

We make decisions in a number of different ways, depending on what they are about.

The full Council is the ultimate decision-making body and involves all 39 elected councillors. It agrees most of our larger policies such as council tax setting and the annual budget.

The Cabinet is made up of seven councillors, including the Leader and Deputy Leader, and makes key decisions and recommendations to the Council on how services are provided for local people. Its main responsibilities include monitoring the council budget, making day-to-day decisions on resources and forming partnerships with other organisations.

We also have a number of committees and panels, which make decisions relating to specific areas of our work such as planning, licensing and leisure.  For further information, please visit our Council, Cabinet, committee and panels pages.

When we are considering making major changes to our services, we also ask residents and members of our Citizens' Panel for their views.  To become a member go to our Citizens' Panel page.
