How decisions are made

The Leader is appointed by full Council. The Leader appoints members to the Executive. The Executive makes the key decisions concerning the services we deliver.

Each member of the Executive has a portfolio of services for which they are responsible. Portfolio holders meet regularly with officers in order to make everyday decisions.
