Scrutiny provides the opportunity for the public to become involved in the Council's activities. There is provision for public speaking and to provide written representations at a Scrutiny Committee meeting. Further information is included in the Council's Guide on Public Participation.
If you wish to speak at a Scrutiny Committee you are required to register in advance of the meeting. Please use the links below for the relevant online form:
Public speaking - Corporate Performance and Resources
Public speaking - Environment and Regeneration
Public speaking - Healthy Living and Social Care
Public speaking - Homes and Safe Communities
Public speaking - Learning and Culture
You can request a service area or matter to be considered by Scrutiny Committee, this could be an issue where there is likely to be an improvement for local people.
If you wish to submit a request, please complete the Scrutiny Review Topic Suggestion form or contact the Democratic and Scrutiny Services Section.
The Scrutiny Committees will be unable to consider any issue that is already subject to internal review/consideration by the Council or external review by an external body.
It is also important that you are aware that matters relating to specific cases falling within the Council's Complaints Procedure and individual disciplinary/grievance matters are also outside the remit of the Scrutiny Committees.
Should the Committee agree to consider the matter you will be advised of the process that will be undertaken and the date of the meeting.
Whenever possible, a member of the public wishing to make a representation or speak at any time to a Scrutiny Committee is requested to contact the Democratic and Scrutiny Services Section or the relevant Chairman prior to the meeting to discuss the matter.
To improve the way Scrutiny engages with the public and stakeholders, the Council has adopted Participation Cymru's 10 Principles for Public Engagement.
