Scrutiny is important to local democracy and exists to hold decision-makers to account and ensure that issues of concern to local residents and visitors are addressed.
It could be a problem in a local area, a council service, or an issue which you feel the council, using its community leadership role, should take a lead in improving.
Based on these issues, the committee can make a number of recommendations to the council or other agencies, which can help to make real improvements to the lives of residents in the district.
If you think there is a particular issue that should be scrutinised email firstname.lastname@example.org.
