The structure of the Council
Ryedale District Council has 30 Councillors and operates a Committee style of political governance. The way the Council works is governed by the Council Constitution.
The ultimate decision-making body of the authority is the Full Council. All Councillors are members of Full Council.
There are three decision-making committees which make recommendations to Full Council. Each committee is made up of Councillors in proportion to their party’s representation on the Council.
There is a Overview and Scrutiny Committee whose role is to scrutinize decisions made by the other committees of the Council, and the performance and effect of Council services and policies.
The Council also has a number of sub-committees and working parties that undertake specific activities.
