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:

  • Cabinet
  • 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.

For more information about call-ins please read our frequently asked questions.
