The council makes many decisions. A key decision is an executive decision that meets at least one of the following criteria:
- it will have a long-term (5 years +) or permanent effect on the council or borough.
- it affects individuals or organisations outside the borough.
- it affects individuals or organisations in more than one ward
- it is worth more than £50,000 or 25% of the annual revenue budget of the service or function of the capital allocation to the scheme concerned, whichever is the greater
