Use the search options at the bottom of the page to find information regarding recent decisions that have been taken by Council officers.

Alternatively you can visit the decisions by Council and committees page for information on decisions that have been taken by the Council’s decision making bodies.

The openness of Local Government Bodies Regulations 2014 requires the recording of certain decisions taken by officers acting under powers delegated to them by the Council, its committees or sub-committees or a joint committee. The written record must be available for inspection at the Councils offices and on the website if it has one, as soon as reasonably practicable, and should include:
•The decision taken and the date the decision was taken;
•The reasons for this decision;
•Any alternative options considered and rejected; and
•Any other background documents.

Where a decision is taken under a specific express authorisation the names of any member of the Council who has declared a conflict of interest must be recorded,

This requirement only applies to all decisions taken by officers whilst acting under a specific express authorisation and to only three categories of decision taken whilst acting under a general authorisation. These categories cover decisions:
•To grant a permission or licence
•That affects the rights of an individual
•Award a contract or incur expenditure which in either case affects that relevant local government body’s financial position.

You can ask for a copy of documents relating to decisions taken by any officer acting under specific or general delegated powers.
