The Joint O and S Review Sub-Committee was established in October 2015 to carry out a review of the arrangements for Overview and Scrutiny at Waverley.  The Sub-Committee has utilised the Centre for Public Scrutiny self-evaluation framework to support the review, along with a self assessment by councillors, and the interim report of the Sub-Committee is now presented to the Joint Overview and Scrutiny Committee for consideration.
