If you want to call-in a decision of the cabinet, you must:
- be eligible to call-in a decision
- send your request within 5 working days of the decision being published
- give the reasons why you object to the decision
- offer another solution
You can’t call-in a decision just because you don't like it.
How to call-in a decision of the cabinet
You can call-in a decision of the cabinet, by completing and returning the call-in request form to us. The form can be submitted by post or by email.
Filling in a call-in request form
Whether returning the form to us by post or by email, the form should include the following information about everyone who has asked for a decision to be looked at again:
- their name
- their address
- their signature
If you are unable to return the signed form by email within the time allowed, the other people supporting your call-in must also send us a separate email confirming their support.
Accepting a call-in
If we accept a call-in, an overview and scrutiny committee will consider it and take one of the following actions:
- reject the call-in
- accept it and refer the decision back to the cabinet for re-consideration
