The role of the cabinet

The cabinet system makes the major decisions about council services and many others that you use on a day-to-day basis.

The cabinet normally meets monthly. Its role is to lead in the preparation of the council's policies and budget, to lead the community planning process and the attainment of best value.

The cabinet is made up of the leader and nine other councillors who are chosen by the county council from the majority party, currently Conservative. Each cabinet member has an individual area of responsibility also known as his or her portfolio.
