In this section you will find information on scrutiny in Swansea

The scrutiny function is delivered through the Scrutiny Programme Committee together with a number of Scrutiny Inquiry and Performance Panels.  In addition monthly meetings lists and details of meetings and scrutiny work can be found on the scrutiny blog.Opens new window.

The main aim of scrutiny is to act as a 'critical friend' to the Cabinet and other decision makers in order to promote better services, policies and decisions. Working in a similar way to parliamentary select committees, scrutiny involves councillors who are not in the cabinet.

Scrutiny makes a difference by ensuring that local decision making is better, that local services are improved and that local democracy is strengthened.
