The option for the council to change to the committee system from the current Leader and Cabinet arrangements was introduced in the recent Localism Act 2011.

The new governance arrangements will be introduced from the council’s Annual Meeting in May and the current Leader and Cabinet arrangements will continue until then.

Working groups will be set up to prepare for the transition between now and May.

Under the new arrangements, decisions will be made by groups of Councillors from all parties, sitting as committees with a Chair elected for each committee. Committees will be appointed by Council, which will also set out committees’ terms of reference.
