How to get involved in scrutiny

Attend a scrutiny committee meeting

Come along to a scrutiny committee meeting and listen to the debate. All meetings are open to the public, except when a confidential item is discussed (this is very rare). Meetings usually take place at County Hall in Lewes.

To find out when meetings take place see our committee pages.

Suggest a topic for scrutiny

Is there an issue that you feel scrutiny should be looking at? To put forward an idea to be considered by the relevant scrutiny committee please contact us.

Provide evidence to a committee or review board

Scrutiny members are always keen to take evidence from people who are affected by a particular service or issue they are investigating.

Many of our scrutiny reviews involve public consultation. Find out more about consultation in East Sussex:
