Governance Arrangements

The Local Government Act 2000, (as amended by the Localism Act 2011) sets out the statutory provisions that local authorities must follow in determining or changing their governance arrangements. The Act requires that a local authority must make a formal resolution to make a change in its governance from a Committee to Leader and Cabinet form of arrangements, after which, without a referendum, the Council may not change its governance arrangements for five years. The five-year period runs from the date of the last resolution taken to change governance arrangements.

The new Governance Arrangements can be found here(Opens in a New Window).

About the Forward Plan

Under the Local Authorities (Executive Arrangements) (Meetings and Access to Information) (England) Regulations 2012 a formal notice ,the Forward Plan has to be published 28 calendar days before the decision is taken.  This includes decisions to be taken by the Council Executive or by the Collative Executive which are exempt and have to be taken in private including the reasons why it has to be held in private.

You can find full details in the Forward Plan (opens in a new window)

Where it has not been possible to give 28 calendar days’ notice key decisions can be taken under urgency procedure and a notice will be published on the Councils website providing information of the decision to be taken, by whom and the reasons for urgency.

This helps our Overview and Scrutiny Committee decide which topics they would like to add to their work programme.  Topics for scrutiny can also be suggested by members of the public.  If you would like to submit an item for scrutiny please complete this form (word) (30KB) (Opens in a New Window) and return it to
