Council decision records

What we do:

We publish records of a lot of the decisions taken within the Council, for example:

• If the decision is being made by a Councillor or an officer (in certain circumstances) outside of a meeting
• When we are awarding a contract where the value is between £50,000 and £250,000.
• When we are granting an exemption from our own Contract Procedure Rules

How we do it:

Before a decision can be acted upon it must be published online. Some decisions also have a cooling off period following publication which means that they cannot be acted upon for a specific time after they have been published.

Why we do it:

We have a commitment to ensure that you know what your Council is doing and what decisions it is making
