How to get involved

Overview and scrutiny need the views and experiences of local people in order to help us make a difference and ensure that the council and its partners deliver quality services that meet the needs of the community.

Suggestions of issues for scrutiny

If there are particular services or issues which you think should be looked at, please let us know by emailing decisionmakingandscrutiny@salford.gov.uk or writing to Democratic Services, Room 50, Salford Civic Centre, Chorley Road, Swinton, M27 5DA. You should explain what the issue is and why you think scrutiny should consider it.

All items received will be considered and shared with the relevant scrutiny committee to decide if it can be included on their work programme.

Contributing to the scrutiny committees work programmes

Overview and scrutiny committees agree a work programme each year, which includes services and issues to be reviewed. You can find out more by visiting the latest developments pages.
