23 February 2016

Scrutiny is an independent function of the council, led by local elected councillors, that works with local people and local bodies to help improve services. Essex County Council’s scrutiny committees gather evidence and prepare reports on issues of importance to the local community, often making recommendations to council cabinet members and other local bodies (including the health service).


Any member of the public can attend and watch a public scrutiny meeting.
