Proposal for new Council decision-making model

Nottinghamshire County Council agreed in principle at a Full Council meeting on 23 September 2021 to move to a leader and cabinet model of decision making.

The council has operated a committee system since 2012 but is now proposing to work towards a model of decision making whereby decisions are driven by a Leader and cabinet members (also called an executive system) rather than by multiple committees made up of councillors from different political groups. The Council previously operated a Leader and cabinet system following their introduction in 2000 until 2012.

Further work on the proposals is underway before a final decision is taken in the Spring. If approved at a future council meeting, the changes are due to be implemented at the annual meeting in May 2022.

For more information, please view our press release, or the view the Council report [PDF].

You can leave your feedback below on this proposed new way of decision-making for the Council until 6pm on Friday, 11 February 2022
