Specific comments made about this task

Birmingham City Council - 2016-07-18
I found what appeared to be pages for the various scrutiny committee meetings, which had agendas on them, but I couldn't see clear documents containing minutes and reports

Bracknell Forest Council - 2014-03-05
Are scutiny committee reports different to whats on the 'reports and responses' page?

Bradford Council - 2014-03-24
Someone less familiar with the site may have found this process more difficult. It was easy to find out about the committees themselves, but navigating to the reports was less logical. The Council Minutes page is not intuitive.

Copeland Borough Council - 2014-02-12
Finding a list of committees was easy. Finding any documents about what they've actually been doing and deciding, on the other hand... Google search found one, possibly the most recent, but there was no way beyond that to find specific reports.

Google search led to webcasts - interesting, but not the written report. The names of committees have changed which made it challenging to find up to date documents. There's a gap after early 2012. A to Z under committees, a few more clicks after that. Took a punt that "Your council" would lead to committee reports. KCC has select committees which could confuse some people. That said, if anyone is reading these reports then they have a very sad life.

Leeds City Council - 2013-12-13
Finding information about any committee other than full council and the committee called Executive Committee was difficult navigating from the home page.

Liverpool City Council - 2015-01-15
Easy to find this information.

Newcastle City Council - 2015-02-04
it would have been very easy to find them if it had not involved being taken to a part of the site that was branded differently and had a long list of links that were difficult to read.

Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council - 2014-04-09
I work in local gov and I have no idea what the scrutiny committee does so I doubt that many of the public have any idea either. But, I found the health scrutiny committee ok. Autofill internal search - my search term wasn't the "right" one. No search box on committee pages. Could not find in A to Z. All round a very clean and well organised looking site.
