The Overview and Scrutiny Committee (OSC) is responsible for reviewing the decisions made by the Council’s Cabinet and Executive Officers.
The Committee meets once per month and consists of 26 Councillors, 3 members of the public called Co-opted Members, and a Parent Governor Representative. It acts as a watchdog that reviews and monitors the work and performance of the Council as well as other local organisations such as healthcare providers. This supports the effective delivery of local services and safeguarding of adults and children in the Borough.
The Committee also sets up smaller ‘Task and Finish Groups’ (TFGs) to support the work of the Committee by undertaking more detailed investigations on specific topics.
