What does the Elected Mayor do?

The Elected Mayor gives overall direction to the council and is a principal spokesperson on the council's behalf. Working together with the Council Manager the Elected Mayor proposes the Policy Framework.

How are decisions made?

In all systems of government The Executive is where most decisions are made. Under the new council system The Executive is made up of the Elected Mayor and Council Manager.

In practice, because of the sheer number, most of the everyday decisions will be taken through a scheme allowing council officers to make them. Decisions will have to fit in with the Policy Framework and the budget and will be overseen and scrutinised by the 60 councillors.  Follow the link below to Overview and Scrutiny to find out how this works.
