Purpose of committee

The Council has appointed two Overview & Scrutiny Committees, an Internal Overview & Scrutiny Committee and an External Overview & Scrutiny Committee.


The External Overview & Scrutiny Committee has the same terms of reference as the Internal Overview & Scrutiny Committee, but scrutinises the performance of external public sector bodies operating within Torridge.  The External Overview & Scrutiny Committee also acts as the Council’s Crime & Disorder Committee.
