Purpose of committee

The Cabinet is collectively responsible for all executive functions within the budget and framework adopted by the Council. The remit of the Cabinet is extensive and includes most matters which are not reserved to Full Council or expressly delegated to other bodies (for example: Planning Committee; Licensing Committee; and other committees concerning constitutional and auditory matters).

In addition, the Leader and members of the Cabinet – also known as Portfolio Holders – have specific responsibilities on a day-to-day basis, details of which are set out on their pages:

·         Leader of the Council

·         Portfolio Holder for Communities and Wellbeing

·         Portfolio Holder for Culture, Leisure and Economic Development

·         Portfolio Holder for Finance and Governance

·         Portfolio Holder for Property, Major Projects and Strategic Engagement

·         Portfolio Holder for Sustainability

 

Members of the public may attend to observe any meeting of the Cabinet, unless confidential information is being discussed, and may speak on an item on the agenda by giving prior notice. See the Attending Meetings page for details.
