Scrutiny within District Councils
I am interested to know how Scrutiny is structured within other district councils; specifically Districts because they are more likely to be a similar size to our Council.
Is it viewed as a part-time function, or something that requires at least one FTE?
If part-time, does the function depend on other teams within the council, besides the Scrutiny Officer and Democratic Services?
Also, any ideas for developing community engagement with Scrutiny would be useful.
