Information about Executive Board

The Executive Board is responsible for the overall business of the Council and meets every 2 weeks.

The Executive Board comprises the Leader of the Council, who is the Chairperson, and 9 other members appointed by the Leader. Each of the members of the Executive Board has a defined portfolio of responsibilities.

The decisions of the Executive Board are subject to scrutiny by a different group of councillors, who meet in scrutiny committees to check and monitor what the Executive Board does.

The Forward Work Programme (a programme of work to develop new policies etc.) enhances and develops the 'Budget and Policy Framework'. The Programme is prepared in liaison with all Council Departments, and highlights the major policy and budgetary decisions to be taken by the Executive Board and Council in the next 12 months and updated quarterly 

The Executive Board has published a plan for Moving Forward in Carmarthenshire over the next 5 years.
