Committee structure

Full Council

A meeting of the full Council is comprised of all 44 of our members and is where decisions on important policies are made, such as the setting of Council Tax.  The full Council can also make appointments to Committees and receive petitions from members of the public.

Quasi - Judicial Committees

Quasi-Judicial Committees are delegated powers to make decisions based on law.  Decisions are made after the Committee has considered the evidence and representations put before it and members do not vote along party lines.    


The Committees named below are quasi-judicial. 


Broxtowe Borough Council has a Committee system, which means that all of our members are directly involved in the decision making process, rather than having a Cabinet and Executive. 


The Committees named below have powers delegated to them from full Council to make resolutions on a range of policy issues or make recommendations to other Committees.

Joint Committee

Joint Committees are appointed where two or more Local Authorities are involved in the discharge of a function.  Below is a list of our joint committees. 

Consultative Group

Consultative Groups are bodies that consider representations from either staff or members of the public.  They cannot make decisions, but they can make recommendations to Committees.
