Scrutiny Function

View meetings and minutes

Braintree District Council has four committees which deliver the Council's Scrutiny Function:

In the past, the Overview and Scrutiny Committee and the Governance Committee held the Cabinet to account. However, it was agreed at the AGM on 21st May 2019 that these Committees should be replaced by four Scrutiny Committees. These Committees will hold the Cabinet to account and support the development of the Council's policy frameworks.

The statutory elements of the work previously carried out by the Overview and Scrutiny Committee and the Governance Committee will be undertaken by the Performance Management Board and the Corporate Governance Group respectively. 

The Agenda and Minutes of the former Oveview and Scrutiny Committee and the Governance Committee are available to view on the Council's website.
