Purpose of committee

Scrutiny is the mechanism by which the Executive is held publicly to account.  Together, the scrutiny and overview functions have the capacity to give non- Executive Members a significant opportunity to influence the proposals of the Executive and to probe into the impact of policy decisions on the Borough. The Budget and Finance Overview and Scrutiny Committee performs the following functions: to participate in the budget-setting process, and to facilitate the setting of the Council’s budget within the context of the Corporate Strategy and any other overarching partnership strategies.
