Part 4 - Rules of access to information about the County Council's formal business

Below are the rules of access to information about the County Council's formal business.

  1. Scrutiny Committees play an important role in ensuring that key decisions are well publicised. Thus, if a Scrutiny Committee decides a key decision was taken by the Cabinet, Leader of the Council, Cabinet Member or an Officer but was not treated as such nor taken under the general exception or the special urgency procedure the committee may require the Leader of the Council to submit a report to the full Council.  The report must describe the decision that was made and give the reasons for the decision.  The report must also explain why the Cabinet, Leader of the Council, Cabinet Member or Officer believes the decision was not a key decision. Alternatively, if the Cabinet, Leader of the Council, Cabinet Member or Officer accepts the decision was a key decision, the report should explain why it was not publicised as required nor dealt with as urgent business.
