Scrutiny committee to examine councils priorities and funding

Norfolk County Council, 12 April 2022 00:00

Norfolk County Council's priorities and funding are among the issues to be probed by its scrutiny committee this month.

Councillors meet on 20 April 20 to consider a range of reports, including:

  • Better Together for Norfolk - the council's strategy and priorities
  • The council's financial planning, to tackle a predicted £60 million budget gap next year
  • Measuring progress of the council's environmental policy

Scrutiny committee chair, Councillor Steve Morphew, said: "It's the job of Scrutiny to try to ensure council resources are being effectively used to achieve the objectives council sets - the right money, spent in the right way to achieve the right things.

"It's important to attempt to get the complexities of council jargon translated into plain speaking too, especially when issues like the ones on our agenda next week can so easily be shrouded in complexity and hard to understand language."

The meeting will also consider its work programme - the key issues it will scrutinise over the next year.

Members of the public can submit questions to by 5pm on Tuesday 12 April, for consideration during the meeting's 15 minute long question session. For guidance, please visit our Ask a question to a committee page.

Councillors will consider the reports when they meet at 10am on Wednesday, 20 April. You can watch the meeting, live or afterwards online and see the reports
