Chelmsford City Council

Essex moved to Tier 2 restrictions on Saturday 17 October. You can find out what this means and get other useful information on our coronavirus updates page.

 

Main committees

We have a number of key committees that either focus on an important council function, or on more strategic matters.

  • CabinetThe Cabinet includes the Leader of the Council and other senior members, each of whom has responsibility for a particular council service or group of services.
  • Chelmsford Policy BoardThis Board is responsible for reviewing existing council policies, developing new ones and making policy recommendations to the Cabinet and Council as appropriate.
  • Overview and Scrutiny CommitteeThe Overview and Scrutiny Committee's role is to act as a channel for public involvement in the activities of the Council and public bodies operating in Chelmsford, such as the Police and other partner organisations.
  • Planning CommitteeThis Committee makes decisions on about 3% of the planning applications received by the Council. All other applications are decided by the Director of Sustainable Communities, under delegated powers.
