The Executive Board is accountable for certain functions operated by council officers. It has to operate in line with the council's constitution and has the power to set up sub committees where appropriate.
It is made up of the leader of the council, Cllr Terry O'Neill, and deputy leader, Cllr Mike Hannon, and has seven further members:
- Cllr Pat Wright - Health and wellbeing and adult services
- Cllr Kate Hannon - Leisure, community and culture
- Cllr Linda Dirir - Highways, transportation and climate change
- Cllr David Keane - Environment and public protection
- Cllr Colin Froggatt - Children and young people's services
- Cllr Russ Bowden - Corporate resources and assignments.
They have public meetings every four weeks. You can view the agendas and minutes online: Committee Management Information System (CMIS).
Executive board responsibilities:
- To make key decisions that either have a significant impact on the community or have considerable financial implications
- Full authority to implement the policy and budgetary frameworks of the council. This means that most decisions do not need the approval of full council
- The Executive Board can delegate decisions to an individual executive member or senior officer. However, all key decisions must be included in the council's forward plan.
