Calderdale scrutiny bulletin available to view online

Posted on

A monthly scrutiny bulletin is prepared so that Calderdale residents, Councillors, and organisations that the Council works with can find out what each Scrutiny Panel plans to discuss at their next meeting.

You can access the Bulletin here

The idea of preparing a bulletin partly came from residents who attended a Ward Forum asking their Councillors how they could find out what Scrutiny Panels were planning to do.

If you want more information about Scrutiny Panel agendas, all the papers are published online here seven days before the meeting is due to take place.
