Information about Cabinet

The Cabinet is a group of Councillors who work with Council staff to run the Council and take most decisions except those about major policy issues or setting the annual budget (which only the Council Meeting can do) or decisions on whether to give planning permissions or licenses which only the regulatory committees can do.  The Leader of the Council chairs meetings of the Cabinet and is elected for a four year term. The Cabinet is made up of seven Councillors who each have responsibility for special areas of the Council. The Cabinet can only make decisions within the scope of the overall Budget and Policy Framework set by the Council Meeting. If the Cabinet wants to make a decision outside the Budget and Policy Framework then it has to get the Council Meeting to agree.
