Committees

Councillors are appointed to sit on various committees.  All 36 Councillors meet together as the Council. The Council is the forum for political debate on policy and strategic matters and is the decision making body for all matters other than those matters delegated to the Planning, Licensing, Standards and Corporate Governance Committees. It receives recommendations from Committees and delegates certain decisions to Officers.

The role of the Strategy Group is to give initial consideration to potential strategies and policies and to make recommendations to the Council for decision.  The Portfolio Holders sit on the Strategy Group, please click here to view the Portfolio Holders Responsibilities. Task Panels may be convened by the Strategy Group or the Scrutiny and Improvement Committee from time to time in order to deal with specific business.

To find out more information about any of the aforementioned functions, the Council's decision-making bodies or how to take part in meetings, please contact the Governance Team. The majority of Council meetings are open to the public. The public can be excluded from some meetings if the items being discussed are of a confidential nature.

Members of the public may ask questions of the Leader of the Council at Council meetings. A question may only be asked if notice has been given in writing or by electronic mail to the Chief Executive, no later than midday three working days before the day of the meeting.  Please use the following e-mail address: governance@daventrydc.gov.uk Each question must give the name and address of the questioner. At any one meeting no person or organisation may submit more than one question.  Questions can be rejected if they are: defamatory, frivolous, not a matter for which the local authority has responsibility, if it requires the disclosure of confidential information or the question is similar to a question which was put to Council within the past six months.
