Individual Executive Member Decisions
Purpose of committee
There are up to ten members of the Council’s Executive and they are also known as Portfolio Holders. In addition to being able to make decisions as a group they can also make certain decisions as individuals. These decisions still require a report to be written and published.
A number of officers and other Councillors will be consulted prior to the decision being made. The benefit of this system is that comparatively routine decisions can be speeded up so that the Executive can concentrate on more strategic issues.
As with meetings of the Executive, decisions to be taken by individuals must appear on the Forward Plan, and summaries of the decisions are published on the Council's website. Copies of the signed decision sheets can be viewed at the Council Offices, Market Street during office hours.
