Scrutiny committees

Councillors on scrutiny committees are able to look into anything that affects the wellbeing of residents and make recommendations for improvements. They look internally at the workings, policies and performance of the council, and at external authorities and agencies.

If you think there are issues or services that would benefit from further scrutiny, let us know.
