The Cabinet is the part of the Council that is responsible for most day to day decisions. The Cabinet is made up of the Leader of the Council and up to nine other councillors appointed by the Leader. When major decisions are to be discussed or made, these are published in the Cabinet's Forward Plan as far as they can be anticipated. If these major decisions are to be discussed with Council officers at a meeting of the Cabinet, this will generally be open for members of the public to attend except where personal or confidential matters are being discussed. The Cabinet has to make decisions that are in line with the Council's overall policies and budget. If it wishes to make a decision that is outside the budget or policy framework, this must be referred to the Council as a whole to decide. Cabinet meets normally every four weeks on a Thursday afternoon starting at 4pm.
