The Executive is responsible
for most day-to-day decisions. The Executive is made up of the
Leader, a Deputy Leader and up to eight Councillors are ordinary
members of the Executive.
Neither the Mayor nor the
Deputy Mayor may be appointed to the Executive.
When Key Decisions are to be
discussed or made, these are published in the Executive’s
Forward Plan whenever possible. If these Key Decisions are to be
discussed with Council officers at a meeting, this meeting will
generally be open to the public unless exempt or confidential
matters are to be discussed.
The Executive has to make
decisions which are in line with the Council’s overall major
Policies and Budget Framework. Should the Executive wish to make a
decision which is outside the framework or budget, this must be
referred to the Council.
