North Lincolnshire Council has 43 councillors who meet as a full council about four or five times a year (or as required). Their responsibilities include setting the council's overall policies and budgets and setting the council tax levels each year.
The council's decision making structure consists of a cabinet, a number of Overview and Scrutiny Panels, together with some Regulatory Committees. Local people chose this structure from three possible options after wide consultation.
Members of the public have rights to information on council decisions. This includes who is going to make a key decision and when and how they can make representations about that decision.
