How can the public get involved in scrutiny?
All scrutiny committees, panels and task groups are open to the public. There may be occasions when the public and press will be asked to leave the meeting, but the reason will be made clear by the chair.
Other ways the public can be involved are by:
- submitting a scrutiny subject
- suggesting issues to their local councillor
- attending meetings
- participating in task groups by providing views and expertise about the subject under consideration
Please note that if you address a meeting, your name and the contents of your submission will be recorded in the minutes which are a permanent and public record.
