Council structure

How is East Riding of Yorkshire Council structured?

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is structured under two headings; councillors and officers.

The full council (a meeting of all councillors) is the strategic body, responsible for all decisions and oversees the work of the council. The day to day decision making is undertaken by the Cabinet and other committees under the council committee structure.

The operational side of the council (ie day to day functions) is carried out by council officers (paid staff) under the corporate council structure.
