Scrutiny in Swansea

In this section you will find information on scrutiny in Swansea.

The overview and scrutiny function is delivered through the Scrutiny Programme Committee together with a number of Scrutiny Inquiry and Performance Panels. A copy of the scrutiny work programme can be downloaded on the right.

The main aim of scrutiny is to act as a 'critical friend' to the Cabinet and other decision makers in order to promote better services, policies and decisions. Working in a similar way to parliamentary select committees, scrutiny involves councillors who are not in the cabinet.

Scrutiny makes a difference by ensuring that local decision making is better, that local services are improved and that local democracy is strengthened.
