About the Policy Committee

The Policy Committee exercises the Council's powers in making decisions or recommendations on all major non-regulatory matters.

The Policy Committee is comprised of 15 Councillors and makes decisions on matters within its terms of reference that are not delegated to officers or the regulatory committees, or reserved to the Council Meeting.  Decisions on plans, policies or strategies which are considered to have a significant corporate impact, or which have a significant impact on the Council's resources, are referred to the Council Meeting for confirmation.

If you require any Council / Committee information prior to the 2017-18 municipal year then please contact the Democratic Services Team by e-mailing committees@cravendc.gov.uk or by telephone (01756) 706226.
