Council Record of Decisions

The Record of Decisions contains details of decisions delegated to officers and/or individual Cabinet members.  Please note that not all decisions have to be recorded in this way.  There is no requirement to record administrative and operational decisions which are part of an officer’s day to day work within the Council rules, with the exception of decisions taken under general authorisation which the effect of the decision is to either:

  • Grant a permission or licence.
  • Affect the rights of an individual.
  • Award a contract or incur expenditure which materially affects the Council’s financial position.

(see The Openness of Local Government Bodies Regulations 2014 for further guidance or delegations to specific officers detailed in the Council’s Constitution).

Some records of decisions are already accessible to the public and are available as follows:

Council Meetings Committee Meeting and Sub-Committee Meeting Decisions

Any options considered will be detailed within the committee reports, and the decisions will be recorded in the minutes of the meeting.
