Scrutiny Committees

The Vale of Glamorgan Council has appointed five Scrutiny Committees


The Vale of Glamorgan Council recognises that members of the public can make an important contribution and be a valuable source of information.  The Council therefore encourages the active participation of all residents within the Scrutiny process in the Vale.


Although most meetings to date have taken place at the Civic Offices, where appropriate meetings have been held elsewhere in the Vale.


It is important to be aware that the Scrutiny Committees do not deal with individual queries, concerns or complaints.  Scrutiny Committee meetings are a meeting held in public but they are not a public meeting.

Current Work Programmes

Usually at the first meeting in the Municipal Year, each Scrutiny Committee will consider the Cabinet Forward Work Programme and determine its priorities for the coming year.


The Cabinet Forward Work Programme will include details (as far as is known) of those areas which it is intended will be subject to "Pre-Cabinet Scrutiny" prior to a formal decision being made.  The Cabinet Forward Work Programme should, in turn, form a key element when the Work Programmes of the Scrutiny Committees are being drawn up. 



Scrutiny Committee Work Programmes 

Scrutiny Committee Work Programmes are monitored on a regular basis and considered by each Committee on a quarterly basis.
