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 – Councillor Hammond
  • Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Customer and Organisation – Councillor Rayment
  • Cabinet Member for Children and Learning - Councillor Dr Paffey
  • Cabinet Member for Culture and Homes – Councillor Kaur
  • Cabinet Member for Finance & Income Generation – Councillor Barnes-Andrews
  • Cabinet Member for Health and Adults – Councillor Fielker;
  • Cabinet Member for Green City and Place – Councillor Leggett
  • Cabinet Member for Stronger Communities – Councillor Shields



Detail the individual Portfolio responsibilities can be found in Part 3 of the Council's Constitution - Responsibility for Functions


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.
