Scrutiny is currently paused due to the upcoming local elections on 5 May 2022.

Scrutiny Committee Members will be appointed at the Council’s Annual General Meeting on 26 May 2022, with Scrutiny committee meetings recommencing in June 2022.

The new scrutiny committees will meet in June and July to develop their forward work programme. They will be published when they have been agreed by committee.

Inquiry repor​ts​

The Cabinet considers the report and responds to the recommendations.

Research reports​​

We undertake independent research to inform the Committees’ work, collecting evidence from stakeholders on their views and experiences. We also review existing research and good practice to highlight work Cardiff Council could learn from.​

  • Benchmarking practice and feasibility, 2014
  • A Review of Cardiff Council's Scrutiny Impact using CFPS outcome indicators, 2018
  • Methodologies for Assessing Scrutiny Impact, 2019​

​Every year, scrutiny committees report on their work, highlighting contributions received and recommendations made.

Their reports highlight the impact of scrutiny and changes that were carried out.

In 2020 to 21, the five scrutiny committees developed a combined Annual Report.
