The Council considered a report of the Director of Transformation and Partnerships which presented the Overview and Scrutiny Annual Report for 2018/2019 (for copy see file of Minutes).


Councillor R Crute, Chair of Overview and Scrutiny informed Council that the Annual Report contained details of key Scrutiny activity and achievements during 2018/19 and also the work programmes for Overview and Scrutiny.  The scrutiny work programme for the year had reflected a balanced programme of work and of improvement in the operation of scrutiny which met the four principles of effective public scrutiny.  The format of the report had been amended so that it was easier to read online to raise awareness of the work of the Scrutiny Committees.


Councillor Crute thanked all Members, Co-optees and the Scrutiny Support Team for their work over the year.


Councillor R Bell commended the report and in particular the work of Councillor J Robinson as Chair of the Adults, Wellbeing and Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee.
