At the beginning of the Corporate Year each Subject Overview and Scrutiny Committee will be asked to identify issues for consideration during the year, using pre-determined criteria which emphasises the need to consider issues such as impact, risk, performance, budget and community perception when identifying topics for investigation.

These items will be presented to the Corporate Overview and Scrutiny Committee for prioritisation and designation to each Subject Scrutiny Committee.

The Forward Work Programme will remain flexible and be revisited at each Corporate Overview and Scrutiny Committee meeting to consider other potential items and reprioritise with input from the Subject Scrutiny Committee.

The Forward Work Programme is regularly reviewed and updated, and agenda items for individual meetings are determined by the Corporate Committee in consultation with the Overview & Scrutiny Unit.
