What is the Cabinet?

The cabinet is made up of eight members from the Labour group, including the Leader and Deputy Leader of the Council. The Cabinet is the key decision making body of the Council, and provides political leadership and direction across the whole range of council services.

Cabinet also advises full council on policies, plans and strategies, including the fixing of the budget and council tax levels, which remains the responsibility of all members of the Council.

Meetings are chaired by the Leader of the Council, and are usually attended by senior council officers including the Chief Executive.

Cabinet membership

Each cabinet member has responsibility and individual decision making powers for a ‘portfolio’ of particular services. Portfolio executive meetings have similar rules to cabinet regarding public access.
