What is a call-in?
A 'Call in' is a statutory (legal) process which enables a prescribed number of members of the Council (including statutory co-opted members) request that a decision that has been made but not yet implemented to be reconsidered by the person or body making the decision.
What decisions can be called-in?
Any decisions made by the following are subject to the call-in procedure:
- a Cabinet Member
- a committee of the Cabinet
- an Officer taking a key decision acting on delegated authority from the Cabinet
- an area committee
- a body under joint arrangements
BUT NOT the decisions of quasi-judicial or Regulatory Committees.
