The Cabinet is the part of the Council which is responsible for most day-to-day decisions.
The Cabinet meets on a two to three-weekly basis and its meetings are open to the public. You can ask questions or make a short statement, provided you let us know first. Please see the Public question time link for more details.
Cabinet's primary roles are to lead in the preparation of the Council's policies and budget, to lead the community planning process and to ensure the attainment of best value. A full list of its functions can be found in the Council's Constitution.
The Cabinet has to make decisions which are in line with the Council's overall policies and budget. If it wishes to make a decision which is outside the budget or policy framework, this must be referred to the Council to decide. Decisions made by the Cabinet are subject to 'call-in'.
This is where members who are not part of the Cabinet are given the opportunity to challenge a decision made by the Executive (Cabinet). If this happens, the Cabinet may have to reconsider its decision.
The Cabinet also publishes a Forward Plan which contains: a list of key decisions that Cabinet is likely to take in the following four months; how and with whom consultation takes place on those matters before the decision is taken; the expected date of the meeting that the decision will be taken at; and the steps to be taken by anyone who wants to make representations to the Cabinet about this matter.
The Cabinet is made up of ten members, one of whom, the Leader, is elected by Council for a 4-year term of office. The other nine members area appointed by the Leader.
