Information about Cabinet

The Cabinet

The Leader chooses a Cabinet of other Councillors (called Cabinet Members) who will together make decisions on important subjects or matters affecting the City or Council as a whole.

 

The Cabinet Members

 

Each Cabinet Member has responsibility for a range of council activities, which are called Portfolios. At present these are:

 

  • Leader of the Council – Councillor Letts;
  • Health and Adult Social Care – Councillor Shields;
  • Education and Change  - Councillor Jeffrey;
  • Communities – Councillor Kaur;
  • Children’s Safeguarding – Councillor Chaloner
  • Economic Development and Leisure – Councillor Matt Tucker
  • Environment and Transport – Councillor Jacqui Rayment;
  • Housing and Sustainability – Councillor Warwick Payne;
  • Resources  – Councillor Stephen Barnes-Andrews;

 

The Cabinet Members can make decisions individually for their Portfolio area and so most decisions are made either by the whole Cabinet or an individual Cabinet Member.

However, these decisions must be in accordance with the Budget and the Plans in the Policy Framework, all of which have been agreed by the whole Council.

Cabinet usually meets once a month.  The meetings are open to the public, and are generally held in the Council Chamber.
