The Cabinet is a group of 8 Councillors, all from the majority political group (Conservative) represented on the Council. The Leader of the Council (Cllr Barry Rickman) chairs the Cabinet. He has appointed the other 7 members. The Cabinet is responsible for taking all decisions classed by the law as "Executive" decisions. Many of these decisions are taken at a meeting of the whole Cabinet. However, each Cabinet member has a "portfolio", that is, a list of the responsibilities assigned specifically to that member. Subject to certain conditions, individual Cabinet members are able to take decisions on matters within their portfolio.
