The Cabinet is responsible for proposing the
policy framework and budget to Full Council and for taking in-year
decisions on resources and priorities. The Cabinet delivers and
implements the budget and policies decided by Full Council.
The Cabinet consists of the Leader of the
Council and nine other elected members. Each Cabinet Member has a
portfolio of responsibilities although decisions are taken
collectively at Cabinet meetings.
The Cabinet has a programme of
work known as the forward plan. The forward
plan helps the Cabinet plan its work and sets
out the decisions the Cabinet will make over the next few months.
It also gives residents of Medway the opportunity to comment on the
issues that the Cabinet is tackling. The forward plan
