The Scrutiny Panels
Calderdale Council has five Scrutiny Panels, which carry out the Council's overview and scrutiny responsibilities. The Scrutiny Panels act as a "check and balance" on the Council's executive functions, carried out by the Cabinet and the Council's senior management. It does this both through taking a detailed look at local issues and services and recommending improvements and by scrutinising executive decisions and service performance.

Scrutiny has an important role to play in Calderdale achieving its long term vision of 'everyone different everyone matters' and in tackling the Council's key priorities .
And we don't just look at Council services - the NHS, police and even private and community organisations can come under our spotlight!
