Get involved with scrutiny

There are many ways that you can get involved with scrutiny in Coventry.

Attending a Scrutiny meeting

You can go to any public Scrutiny meeting. You'll find all the agendas, minutes and papers for meetings on our website. The papers for the next Board are usually available five days before the meeting.

Suggesting a topic for scrutiny

The Boards write a work plan at the beginning of every Council year (1 May), which are chosen to make sure they look at the major issues.

We are always keen to hear from you about things you think should be improved in the city. If there is something you think should be considered for the work programme, please get in touch.

The scrutiny work is meant to be make sure everyone can see the Council is acting properly. Papers are available to view and anyone is welcome to attend the meetings (unless an item is exempt under certain reasons). Scrutiny works better if you get involved – why not suggest a topic for scrutiny, give evidence at a meeting or host a site visit.

Follow us @covscrutiny where we share the topics to consider at scrutiny meetings.

Become a Co-optee

The Boards have the power to bring in extra members if they think it would help their work.

Education and Children's Services Scrutiny Board (2) has regular co-optees who represent the education community to improve discussions about children, learning and young people.

Speaking at meetings

If you wish to speak at a meeting, please contact the Scrutiny Co-ordinator for that meeting who will talk to the Chair.
