Scrutiny

Task and Finish Groups & Spotlight Reviews

Task and Finish Groups & Spotlight Reviews may be established by a scrutiny committee for the purpose of reviewing a service, policy or issue that affects the council, its residents or the borough. Evidence is gathered in a variety of ways, including:

  • Co-opted members
  • Written evidence
  • Oral evidence from both internal and external witnesses
  • Site visits
  • Research
  • Consultation events

When the evidence has been gathered, a report setting out recommendations is produced and presented to the relevant Scrutiny Committee. Once agreed by the Committee, the report and recommendations are then presented to the Council's Cabinet for consideration. Cabinet's response to the report and recommendations are then presented back to the relevant Scrutiny Committee.
