How we make decisions

Key decisions

Some executive decisions are known as "Key Decisions". 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.

Details of Key Decisions which are to be taken are published in a Notice no later than 28 days prior to the meeting at which the decisions are to be taken. Key Decisions are those that are likely to have a major impact on the life of a community on the Borough or which are likely to be financially significant.

For each Key Decision to be taken, the following information is provided:

  • The service area.
  • The date on which the decision is to be taken.
  • The decision taker.
  • The subject area for decision.
  • The anticipated outcome of the decision.
  •  A contact in respect of the item.
