Purpose of committee
The Council’s Cabinet (which is sometimes known as the “executive”) is made up of the Leader of the Council and 7 other county councillors and has particularly wide-ranging responsibilities. Unlike other council bodies most of the Cabinet’s duties and powers are derived from Acts of Parliament and subordinate legislation (that is, orders and regulations laid before Parliament) rather than powers that have been delegated to it by full Council.
A Cabinet’s role is principally to formulate detailed policies and proposals for delivery of services within the policy and budgetary framework that is set by full Council.
