Isle of Wight Council

Overview and Scrutiny


The Isle of Wight Council has adopted an “executive” style of governance. In addition to an Executive and regulatory committees, the Constitution provides for three Select Committees, a Scrutiny Committee and an Audit Committee. The Select Committees have responsibility for policy review and development work within their areas of responsibility. The Scrutiny Committee manages and co-ordinates all overview and scrutiny work, and takes an overall view on budget and performance management.
