Decision making by the Council
Decisions at Pembrokeshire County Council are taken in accordance with the Authority's Constitution, which reflects current legislative requirements. Under current constitutional arrangements, the Authority's decisions are taken at formal meetings of elected Members and depending on whether the subject matter is an "Executive" responsibility or not, the decision will be taken in Cabinet, (the Executive) or Council or one of Council's committees, such as Planning Committee, Licensing Committee or Standards Committee. Cabinet, as the Executive, is held to account by Council's Overview and Scrutiny Committees. Some decisions, which are Council responsibilities, are delegated to officers to take on Council's behalf, but Cabinet may also delegate responsibility for taking decisions to individual Cabinet Members as well as officers.
