This page lists the meetings for 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.
Each Cabinet Member has responsibility for a
range of council activities, which are called Portfolios. At

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
However, these decisions must be in accordance
with the Budget and the Plans in the Policy Framework, all of which

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