Overview and scrutiny - reports and responses

As required by the council’s constitution, an annual overview and scrutiny report is prepared each year. The report explains the structure of overview and scrutiny and how it works at Bracknell Forest. It outlines the work undertaken by the Overview and Scrutiny commission and panels, and it gives a forward look to future developments.

Recent Overview and Scrutiny reviews and responses to them

Having completed a review, the Overview and Scrutiny commission or panel concerned usually prepare a report saying what they did, what they found, and their conclusions. The reports usually contain recommendations to the executive or other public bodies. Having received and considered reports of Overview and Scrutiny reviews, the executive or partner organisation concerned must respond to the relevant commission or panel within two months. The response may be in the form of a verbal response at a commission or panel meeting, which will be recorded in the minutes of that meeting, or more usually in writing.
