Scrutiny Panel Meeting (call-in) – 20 August 2015



Call-in ?

The scrutiny panel is holding a special meeting to review the decision to make changes to the way grass is cut and open spaces are maintained.

Cabinet members approved the plan on the 28 July 2015 but will not be able to make the changes until the the Overview & Scrutiny Management Committee have fully considered it – we call this a ‘call-in’.

The reasons for the ‘call in’ are written in the ‘call-in notice’

The Committee does not have the power to overturn the decision – but they can recommend that the Cabinet consider amending it.

About the meeting

The meeting will take place at 10 am on Thursday 20 August 2015 at Huddersfield Town Hall.

The meeting will probably last for most of the day.

During the morning councillors who are concerned about the decision and the Cabinet members who made the decision will make presentations to the panel.
