About the Meetings

The Council

The full Council consists of 48 Councillors and is made up of 32 Labour, 12 Conservatives and 4 Independents.  The Councillors determine the policies made including budgets and other strategic documents.  Full Council meets every cycle and acts as a watchdog to make sure that the Cabinet's decisions are in the best interests of the people of Bassetlaw.  You may, if you wish, ask a question of Council by writing to the Chief Executive.  Questions must be received by noon, seven clear working days before the meeting.

The Cabinet

The Cabinet is a group of eight elected Councillors and is chaired by the Leader of the Council. It monitors the performance and spending for the Council's priority areas and refers some key decisions to Full Council so that all 48 Councillors are involved in the final decision.


There are many Committees that meet on a regular basis.  Councillors from all the political groups are represented on the Committees and are chaired by a Member from the Labour Group as it forms the current political administration.
