Committee details


Purpose of committee

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 Fielker
  • Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Finance and Corporate Services – Councillor Letts
  • Cabinet Member for Economic Development – Councillor Bogle
  • Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport – Councillor Keogh
  • Cabinet Member Green City and Net Zero – Councillor Savage
  • Cabinet Member for Children and Learning – Councillor Winning
  • Cabinet Member for Communities and Safer City – Councillor C Lambert
  • Cabinet Member for Compliance and Leisure – Councillor Kataria
  • Cabinet Member for Housing Operations – Councillor A Frampton
  • Cabinet Member for Adults and Health – Councillor Finn


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.
