Overview and Performance Committee

Purpose of committee

The Overview and Performance Committee is one of the Council’s three Overview and Scrutiny (O&S) Committees whose role is to scrutinise the decisions and performance of the Executive and the Council as a whole and to undertake policy development and review work.  The O&S Committees consist of two subject-specific Scrutiny Committees who carry out the majority of the review work, and the Overview and Performance Committee which co-ordinates the workload.


The Overview and Performance Committee has an overarching role over the O&S function.  The Committee sets the work programme for O&S and receives updates from the Chairmen of the two scrutiny committees.  In addition, the Overview and Performance Committee undertakes financial and performance monitoring, and has the following specific responsibilities within its remit:  Community Strategy, Corporate Strategy, Financial Strategy, Risk Management and Efficiency.


Please note that, as of 1 January 2009, the Overview Committee became the Overview and Performance Committee.
