Cabinet and the Leader of the Council


Information about our Cabinet and Leader of the Council.

Our Cabinet is made up of the Leader of the Council and nine other councillors, each with their own portfolio. Cabinet discusses and makes decisions about our policies and strategies, as well as countywide decisions and issues, which affect more than one of our services. It meets in communities across the county to hold its decision-making closer to local people.
