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.
