Committee details


Purpose of committee

The Leader appoints a Deputy Leader and up to eight other Councillors to the Executive. Each Councillor within the Executive is allocated a specific portfolio responsibility, covering particular service and policy areas. The Executive meets approximately every six weeks.

It must act in accordance with council policy and within set budgetary constraints. In cases where the Executive believes it is necessary to go beyond those boundaries, the decision is put before the full Council.

Anyone can attend a meeting of the Council, the Executive and its Committees, which are also available to view online on our webcasting site.

Further information on the Executive portfolios is available here.
