Scrutiny is a Councillor-led statutory function within the
Council. It is responsible for holding decision-makers to account
on behalf of borough residents and helping to develop policies and
initiatives that make the borough a better place to live and work.
The usual focus of Scrutiny is to improve services, whether these
are Council services or provided by the local NHS, police, utility
companies and transport providers, amongst others.
