This committee is chaired by the leader of the council who selects eight cabinet members from their ruling group. Each Cabinet member has specific areas of primary responsibility, as detailed below.
The Cabinet reviews reports prepared by council staff working with the cabinet member who represents them. The report recommends a decision on an important subject, and the Cabinet debates and votes on it in a public meeting.
Cabinet members can make decisions on less important subjects themselves – we call this an Individual Cabinet Member Decision.
We publish all decisions made by the Cabinet, and all Individual Cabinet Member Decisions on our democratic pages.
See our calendar for the dates of all of our Cabinet meetings. Five working days before a meeting, we will publish the reports the Cabinet is reviewing. You can find these reports on the calendar.
