Information about Cabinet

The Council has a single party Cabinet made up of ten councillors. The Cabinet provides transparent and accountable political leadership. It also takes away a lot of the business detail involved in delivering the Council's corporate priorities. This frees up time for the majority of councillors to exercise their ward councillor role. It enables them to focus on how the Council delivers services on the ground.


The Cabinet works within the Council's agreed policy framework. It can set up sub-committees to consider specific issues in detail. All Cabinet members are accessible to other councillors and their individual and collective decisions may be subject to scrutiny.


Cabinet Membership:


  • Leader (Chair)
  • Deputy Leader

  • Children’s Services

  • Environment, Culture and Public Spaces
