Councillors must say if they have an interest in any of the items on the Agenda. Interests may be personal or pecuniary. Depending on the interest declared, it might be necessary for the Councillor to leave the meeting during the debate on any given item. Further information regarding declarations of interest can be found in Part 5A of the Constitution - Members’ Code of Conduct.



Most of the decisions made at the Committee (except in relation to planning and licensing matters) can be “called in” for review by a minimum of 2% of the registered local government electors who live in the Borough or 9 Councillors.


Call-in does not apply to decisions of this committee in respect of planning or licensing matters. These are subject to a separate legal appeals process.


A Decision notice will be published on the Council’s website soon after the meeting with details of the decisions. A decision can be called in for a period of 10 working days after the meeting. Decisions are not, therefore, acted upon until it is clear that they are not going to be called in.


A call-in means the decision will be reviewed by a meeting of the Council’s Scrutiny Panel. The Panel cannot overturn the decision. It may decide that no further action is necessary, in which case the decision will be implemented or will refer the issue back to the decision making Committee (or, exceptionally, to a meeting of the Full Council) with its views and a request that the decision is reconsidered taking account of these views.




The Minutes briefly summarise the item and record the decision. They do not record who said what during the debate.
