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 Overview Select Committee; Environment, Tourism & Leisure Working Group and Housing & Customer Services Working Group on policy development and review.
Cabinet Members are also able to take decisions on an individual basis.
