Overview and Scrutiny


Public Involvement in Select Committee Meetings and Scrutiny Committee Meetings

Details of times and venues for meetings together with copies of agendas are available online by visiting the Committees and Panels web page or in libraries.

Procedures at:

  • Select Committee,
  • Scrutiny Committee
  • Audit Committee meetings.

are governed by a number of rules. These rules are set out in Sections of the Council’s Constitution.

Occasionally confidential or exempt information has to be considered. Relevant business may then be dealt with in private session.

Members of the public are actively encouraged to attend meetings, and to become involved in scrutiny investigations.

In addition, the Select Committees and the Scrutiny Committee would welcome input into their workplans from members of the public.
