Committee details

Executive Board

Purpose of committee

The Executive Board is the principal decision making body of the Council. The Board meets approximately 11 times a year, usually at 1.00 pm on a Wednesday.


The Board comprises of eight Executive Members with portfolio responsibilities relating to the Leader of Council’s portfolio; Development and the Economy; Environment; Neighbourhoods, Planning and Support Services; Children’s Services; Leisure and Skills; Adult Social Care and Health and Wellbeing.  There are a further two Executive Members: the Leader of the Conservative Group and the Leader of the Liberal Democrat Group.


All meetings of the Executive Board are open to the public, except where certain parts of an agenda contain confidential or exempt information.  In these circumstances the Executive Board may choose to treat that part of the meeting as a ‘private meeting’ by excluding the public.  The Executive Board may also exclude a member of the public in order to maintain orderly conduct or prevent misbehaviour at a meeting.


Where there is a proposal for a meeting of Executive Board to consider part of a report in private, Part 2 of The Local Authorities (Executive Arrangements) (Meetings and Access to Information) (England) Regulations 2012 requires the Council to provide notification of it’s intention to do so.

Five clear days before each meeting details of the agenda items to be considered and the associated reports will be published on this website.  If any of these items contain confidential or exempt information this will be made clear in the agenda, and the reasons for the restriction will be explained.  If any representations have been received about why the meeting should be open to the public, these will be detailed in the covering report for that item of business, along with the response to any such representations.


Please note that the Council will try all means possible to enable all interested parties to be present at full Council, Executive Board and Committee meetings where decisions take place.  However due to the limited seating capacity within the Civic Hall meeting rooms, the Council regrets that access for all may not always be possible.
