What is the Extended Leadership Team and what are they
The Extended Leadership Team is the main officer decision making
body and works alongside and for the councillors you elect to run
the public services of Cornwall. These range from protecting
vulnerable children and adults and managing more than 7,439
kilometres of roads, to overseeing almost 300 schools with
responsibility for the lives of 120,000 children and young people,
providing social housing, benefits, waste, planning and environment
services, and protecting public safety.
The Leadership Team is responsible for an annual gross
expenditure budget of £1.2 billion, more than 5,800 full time
equivalent employees (excluding schools and arm's length
organisations) and leads an organisation that serves a population
of around 540,000, which is larger than major cities such as
Bradford, Manchester, Liverpool and Sheffield. Created through the
merger of the six former borough and district councils and Cornwall
County Council in 2009, the unitary council is made up of 123
councillors who are elected every four years to represent the
people of Cornwall.
The Leadership Team meets weekly and is responsible amongst
other things for:
- Managerial leadership and direction of the Council and its
family of businesses
- Providing the formal response to Cabinet policy direction and
the development of corporate policy and initiatives for Cabinet
- Co-ordination and commissioning of council-wide activity,
planning and programme management
