How does the Council make decisions?
Richmond Borough Council has a "Leader and Cabinet" style of decision making. This was adopted on 22 May 2001. It means that:
- Full Council is responsible for approving the budget and policy framework.
- Most other decisions are now taken by the Cabinet or individually as Cabinet Member Decisions.
- Four Overview and Scrutiny Committees review and scrutinise these decisions, and conduct reviews of policy and services.
The Leader of the Council is required to publish every month a Forward Plan, which sets out all the key decisions to be taken over the succeeding four months.
