Scrutinising the decision makers

Is there an issue affecting you and your community that you would like the Overview and Scrutiny Committee at Lancaster City Council to look into? 

Is there an issue affecting you and your community that you would like the Overview and Scrutiny Committee at Lancaster City Council to look into? 

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. 

The committee can look into the issues and then make recommendations for improvement to the decision-makers.

If the issue is one for another agency, such as Lancashire County Council for issues related to roads and pavements, the committee will also pass this on and ask them to get back to you.

If you think there is a particular issue that should be scrutinised email scrutiny@lancaster.gov.uk.
