Key decisions and private items

What is a key decision?

A Key Decision is one that is likely to lead to significant expenditure or savings within a service area, or one that is likely to have a significant impact on the life of a community within the Borough.

How it works?

Key decisions and private items are published 28 days before each Cabinet meeting setting out information on all the Key Decisions that are expected to be taken at that meeting, along with decisions to be taken at future meetings where known.

Disputing a decision

Should you wish to make a representation in relation to that part of the meeting being held in private, you are requested to contact Governance and Committee Services in the first instance. If your representation is received no later than eight working days prior to the meeting, both your representation and a response will be issued with the agenda papers for that meeting. Representations received later will be considered at the meeting.
