Council decisions

All matters considered by the council are generally referred to as decisions.

Decisions taken by Cabinet, individual Cabinet members, and authorised officers are not implemented immediately. The decision is recorded along with the reasons for the decision, any alternatives considered and rejected, any relevant interests of members, any dispensations granted, and the expected implementation date for the decision. The decision is published for five clear working days before being implemented. During these five days the decision can be "called in" to be scrutinised by Full Council.

Key decision reports

Reports supporting the decisions taken by Cabinet members and council officers are linked to the business item. Reports for decisions taken by Cabinet are linked to the business item as well as published with the agenda for Cabinet.

You can review the current status of any item of council business since 1 May 2019, and any reports linked to them, using the decisions table below.
