Information about Shadow Overview & Scrutiny Committee

Scrutiny is a vital role in local authorities, and essential when shaping a new authority. It is cross party and non-political with an overall aim of offering "critical friend" challenge, ensuring the transition programme remains on track and contribute to policy development.


The main role and most prominent aspect of the Shadow Overview and Scrutiny work will be to review the proposed budget, ensuring there is a robust budget process and to monitor progress of the implementation plan. With a formal link into the Shadow Executive, scrutiny will escalate areas of concern. Effective scrutiny will help secure the efficient delivery of public services and drive improvements ready for day 1 of the new Buckinghamshire Council.
