The children and young people overview and scrutiny committee scrutinises services and policies relating to children's services, throughout Medway. Its remit includes early years, education, youth justice, social care, children and family services and scrutiny of children's health.
The Children and Young People Overview and Scrutiny Committee also includes independent members who are not councillors, but members of the community co-opted onto the committee because of their relevant skills, knowledge or experience.
The Local Government Boundary Commission for England are currently reviewing Medway's ward boundaries. The new boundaries are expected to increase the number of councillors in Medway from 55 to 59 and will be introduced for the next elections to Medway council in 2023. They have launched a public consultation for residents and organisations in Medway to help them decide where the boundaries should be drawn. The consultation is open until 2 March 2020, with draft recommendations due to be published in June 2020. You can have your say on the new boundaries by clicking the button below, which will take you to the Local Government Boundary Commission for England's consultation.
