The Cabinet (also known as the Executive) is responsible for most of the day to day decisions affecting the running of the Council.

About the Cabinet

The Cabinet is responsible for strategic decisions and recommends proposals for approval by Full Council on the budget, Council Tax levels and the Council's policy framework. Members of the Cabinet are called Portfolio Holders and each has a specific area of responsibility. They make decisions on how our policies and services are delivered.

The portfolios are:

  • Corporate and Finance including the council's finances, Council Tax, Housing Benefit, Insurance and Council Tax Support Scheme, Risk Management and Internal Audit.
  • Environment and Leisure including Parks, Sports and Leisure, Fleet vehicles, Waste disposal and recycling, Cemeteries and crematorium, Health and wellbeing, Allotments and Street cleaning.
  • Housing including Tenants, Special Needs Housing, Housing Allocations Policy, Homelessness Strategy and the operation of mobile homes and caravan sites.
  • Regeneration and Wellbeing including Employment and Skills, Business Support, Growth and Health and Wellbeing.
  • Safer Communities including Community Safety, CCTV, Licensing and Planning and Building Control matters.

Cabinet committees are held when they are required to conduct business. Members vote on recommendations within reports submitted on a meeting agenda.
