The Cabinet is responsible for most of the day to
day decisions of the Council which are not delegated to officers.
It is made up of the Leader of the Council and Cabinet Members
(also known as lead councillors) who have responsibilities for
various service areas.
It develops policies and strategies for approval by
Council, exercises overall control of resources within the
Council's policies and budget and recommends the level of council
tax to the Council. It also considers any matters specifically
referred by the Scrutiny Committee. All "key decisions" to be
discussed or made are published in the Cabinet's Forward Plan in so far as they
can be anticipated.
