Moving to the Committee System

The Localism Act 2011 allows all councils to adopt a political management structure which is responds to local needs, priorities and ambitions. This workshop provides councils who are considering/ have adopted the ‘committee system’ with the knowledge and skills to make the system work across there local area.

By the end of the workshop, Councillors will be able to:

  • have a clear understanding of how the committee system works and how it differs with the executive model
  • understand the decision making process within a committee model of working
  • identify the potential of overview and scrutiny within a committee model
  • understand the implications of the model in terms of the member role, skills and its impact on political group dynamics.
