Information about Place Overview and Scrutiny Committee

West Northamptonshire Council operates an Overview and Scrutiny function that undertakes a number of roles, including:

 

a)    Monitoring decisions of the Cabinet;

b)    Advising the Council on forthcoming decisions;

c)    The development and review of policy; and

d)    Call-in of a decision made by the Cabinet but not yet implemented.

 

The Overview and Scrutiny function will develop a work plan as well as supporting policy development, providing pre-decision scrutiny where appropriate, holding decision-makers to account and exercising the formal call-in of executive decisions to review andy concerns about the making of the decision.

 

West Northamptonshire Council will have three Overview and Scrutiny Committees, and these are as follows:

 

-       Corporate Overview and Scrutiny Committee

-       People Overview and Scrutiny Committee

-       Place Overview and Scrutiny Committee 

 

Further details are set out in the Overview and Scrutiny Procedure Rules in Part 7.2 of the Council’s Constitution.
