Agendas and minutes

You can find details of all agendas and minutes of the Overview and Scrutiny Committees on the council meetings web page.

Very occasionally the Overview and Scrutiny Committee and its scrutiny panels meet in private, which will be for the minimum time needed to consider information that may be sensitive or otherwise confidential in order to protect the interests of external agencies and individuals.
