A REVIEW of how council decisions are made has been called for by Borough of Poole councillor Sally Carpenter, pictured.

The Poole People member has submitted a motion to full council, seconded by colleague Cllr Mark Howell, calling for an in-depth review of its decision making process in the light of the need to make significant savings.

She said: “It is vital that decision making processes are efficient, effective and representative of community views.”

Her motion calls on council to, “Conduct an in-depth review of its decision making process, including consideration of alternatives to the leader and cabinet system, with a view to reinforcing the democratic process and increasing transparency.

“The review should begin promptly and be scheduled to be completed in time for any proposed revisions to be adopted by the council immediately following the May 2015 council elections,” says the motion.
