The Leader chairs the Cabinet and has overall political responsibility for achieving the Council’s objectives. He represents the Council in the community and on important public bodies e.g. Local Government Association and acts as the Council’s primary spokesperson. Executive Members meet on an individual basis with the appropriate chief officers to consider reports on service-related issues and to take decisions.
