The primary role of the Policy and Strategy Committee is to allow free and open debate whilst policies are being developed. The Committee consists of all Councillors. One representative from each Community Board is invited to attend Council meetings, where they have speaking rights only.
A policy is usually initiated within the portfolio groups. It is passed to the Policy and Strategy Committee, which discusses the proposed policy and makes recommendations for additions or amendments. Once the Committee is happy with the policy it goes to the Council for adoption.
