What is Scrutiny?

Overview and Scrutiny was introduced by the Local Government Act 2000 and is now an important part of Local Government arrangements.

The Local Government Act 2000 requires Local Authorities to have executive arrangements by which decisions are made by the Cabinet on behalf of the Full Council. At Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council the Cabinet is responsible for running the organisation and making decisions within the Budget and Policy Framework, which is set by the full council annually.

The Scrutiny function is undertaken by Councillors who do not hold Cabinet posts within the Council. The Scrutiny Structure at Redcar and Cleveland is made up of the Scrutiny Board and a Health Scrutiny Committee. More in depth reviews can be undertaken by Task and Finish Panels as and when required.

In recent years, the role and responsibilities of scrutiny have expanded significantly and include Councillor Call for Action and Call-In. Scrutiny seeks to improve the performance of services by the development of policies, strategies and plans.

Scrutiny has responsibility for investigating the delivery of services provided by a wide range of public, private, voluntary and community sector partners. The unique remit of scrutiny to do this means that it is in an excellent position to examine the links between these organisations and to see where joint working could deliver enhanced services for local people.
