The Local Government Act 2000 required each local authority to set up a scrutiny process as a statutory function of the Council. The Council currently has a single Overview and Scrutiny Panel that covers all of the statutory scrutiny functions. No member of Cabinet can be a member of the Panel as it holds Cabinet to account for its decisions, monitors progress in corporate priorities and contributes to policy making in the Council. The panel normally meets every six weeks on a Monday starting at 1.30pm.
