The Executive 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 Portfolio Holders 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 Overview
& Scrutiny Committee.
All “key decisions”
to be discussed or made are published in the Executive’s
Forward Plan in so far as they can be anticipated.
