Cabinet

Purpose of committee

At Epping Forest District Council, the Leader of Council leads the council with the support of the Cabinet, appointed by the Leader to manage a portfolio of services.

 

The Cabinet (also known as the Executive) is made up of 10 councillors. It makes many of the decisions relating to how Epping Forest District Council is run, working within its financial and policy guidelines.

 

The Cabinet is the Council’s main decision-making body and is responsible for strategic policy-making and budget setting. Routine decisions are taken by individual Cabinet Members acting under their delegated powers, rather than at Cabinet meetings.
