Scrutiny Committees

Non executive Councillors (back benchers) in Eden are involved in Scrutiny - currently 27 members. The members are nominated on to two panels and a Co-ordinating Board. Different political groups are reflected proportionally to reflect the political balance of the Council. There are two committees that meet quarterly and a Co-ordinating Board that meets every two months:

  • Housing and Community Committee- which covers affordable housing, homelessness, cultural services and community safety. This is also the Council's statutory Crime and Disorder Panel.

  • Environment and Economy Committee- which covers transport, environmental health, waste and recycling, economic development, tourism and planning.

  • Scrutiny Coordinating Board- is responsible for co-ordinating the topics being reviewed by the two panels (the work programme). The Co-ordinating Board undertakes cross cutting reviews (topics that cover more than one remit) and the Budget. It also monitors the Corporate Plan (the Council's priorities for service provision in the District) and is responsible for scrutinising performance.

These meetings are usually open to the public unless a particular Panel decides that certain items should be made exempt.
