The Cabinet, is made up of the Leader of the Council
and six other councillors, and uses its Executive Powers to
make most of the Council's decisions on services, functions and
Corporate management, including plans and strategies. Some key
matters, such as setting the budget, remain a matter for Council to
decide. Cabinet meetings take place every fortnight, and are
chaired by the Leader. During these meetings, issues are raised and
discussed, then decisions are made.
When does Cabinet meet?
The Cabinet usually meet fortnightly and the meetings are
chaired by the Leader of the Council (timetable of meeting
dates). During these meetings, issues are raised and discussed,
then decisions are made. Prior to the meeting, the agenda for the
cabinet meeting is sent to all members of the Council. You can view
previous and current Cabinet agendas and minutes here.
The day after the Cabinet meeting, any decisions that were made
are sent to all Members of the Council, along with copies of
reports on which the Cabinet based its decisions. Any councillor
then has the opportunity to "call-in" an item for further scrutiny.
Five scrutiny committees operate to deal with these requests.
Community Cabinet Meetings
The Cabinet also hold a number of Community Cabinet Meetings
throughout the year at various locations within the Vale of
Glamorgan. This is to give local residents the opportunity to
raise any issues they may have and have their voices heard. To
view whether there is a community cabinet meeting in
your area, please see the schedule of
community cabinet meeting dates for 2013.
