Establishment of and Appointments to Scrutiny Panels

It is the responsibility of the Commission to establish Scrutiny Panels as required and to appoint a Chair to each Panel (allowing the Panel Chair to confirm the terms of reference for their review).

 

Climate Change Scrutiny Panel

Following the Full Council meeting in July 2019, and in accordance with the Local Government and Housing Act 1989, the Commission is recommended to consider the establishment and nominations received for the ‘Climate Change’ Scrutiny Panel based on a 5 member Panel consisting of Councillors:

J Hart, K L Jaggard, G S Jhans, T Lunnon and A Pendlington.

 

The careful selection and prioritisation of review work is essential if the scrutiny function is to be successful, achieve added value and retain credibility. The work programme should also be realistic, flexible and retain spare capacity so that additional matters raised during the year can be addressed.
