The Cabinet is the executive arm of the Council with the authority to action policies within the plans, strategies and budget approved by the Council.  Currently there are seven Cabinet Members, including the Leader and Deputy Leader of the Council. The members of the Cabinet (who must be elected members of the Council) are appointed by the Leader, who also allocates their portfolios.

The Cabinet normally meets 11 times per year (every month except August), unless additional meetings are needed. A time is set aside for public questions which must be submitted in writing in advance. See:
