Overview and Scrutiny

Overview and Scrutiny Committees’ Work Programmes Consultation

Bedford Borough Council has four committees that review and investigate issues that matter to local people and local communities, as well as reviewing the Council’s own decisions and policies. These Committees are called ‘Overview and Scrutiny’ Committees and are made up of elected councillors who are not on the Council’s Executive. They have a role not only in looking at council services but also health and community safety. Each committee specialises in one particular area, Children’s Services, Environmental Services and Community Safety, Adult Services and Health, or Corporate Services.

 

We would like your help to develop next year’s agendas. What do you think that the committees should look at?

Here are some examples from this year of what the Committees have considered:

GP Provision and Commissioning;
Children in Care;
Traffic Management in Bedford Town;
Funding of Bedford River Festival.

If you have any suggestions then please contatc us:

Write to: Consulting Bedford, Bedford Borough Council, Borough Hall, Cauldwell Street,
Bedford, MK42 9AP

Please note that the Scrutiny and Overview committees do not deal with individual queries or complaints, such as individual planning applications or housing benefit claims. Any such queries should be addressed to the relevant department.

 

A wide range of individuals and organisations are being consulted in this process. The consultation runs from 13 February to 31 March 2017. The replies will be used by the Committees to draw up their Annual Work Programmes to reflect local priorities. Your views really can make a difference.

 

We look forward to hearing from you.
