As part of their investigative role, Scrutiny Committees can establish a Task & Finish Group during each municipal year.
These are sub-groups of the main committee which are asked to investigate specific issues and report back findings and recommendations for approval before presenting them to the Executive Board.
The purpose of task and finish groups is to contribute to the development of new policy or to undertake a piece of investigative scrutiny work and they have been instrumental in strengthening the policy development / investigative roles of scrutiny during the past few years.
During the 2014/15 municipal year, the committees will be considering the following subjects:
- Community – Empty properties in the private sector
A final report will be available when work of the group is completed and can be accessed by clicking on the text above. Click on the links on the right hand side of this page to read the reports from the most recently completed reviews.
