The Cabinet comprises seven Councillors, all representing the majority party of the Council. There is a Leader, Deputy Leader and five Cabinet Members - each with a specific ’portfolio’ of responsibilities, which are listed in full in the Council’s Constitution. For details of forthcoming meetings see our calendar.
The Cabinet takes key decisions on Council policy, the acquisition and disposal of land and sets much of the strategy for how Council services will be delivered. It also receives recommendations from the Scrutiny Committees on policy development and review.
Cabinet Members are also able to take decisions on an individual basis.
In accordance with Article 7.8.2, the Leader of the Council has provided written notice of the re-allocation of responsibilities for Executive functions between Members of the Cabinet, including changes to the names of the Cabinet Portfolios. The Cabinet Portfolios and appointments, were agreed at the Annual Council Meeting held on 4 June 2014.
