Council management structure

The Council and its executive committees are made up of elected members. The elected members make the key policy and strategy decisions. These policies decide how services are run.

The plans are carried out by Council officers. These officers are based within four directorates each led by an executive director.

The executive directors are managed by the Chief Executive, as the Council’s statutory Head of Paid Service and principal policy adviser to the elected members.
