Governance and Administration

Corporate Policy Group

The Corporate Policy Group (CPG) is a Committee of the Council and is established under Section 133 of the Local Government Act 2001. It comprises the Cathaoirleach of Cork County Council who chairs the group, the chairpersons of the Council's Strategic Policy Committees, and the chairs of each Municipal District.

The role of the CPG is to advise and assist Elected Members in the formulation, development, monitoring, and review of policy. It may also make proposals for the allocation of business between SPCs and for the general coordination of business.

The CPG also may promote coordination, consistency, effectiveness, and avoidance of duplication in the performance of functions of the Council by Municipal District members. 

The Chief Executive is obliged to consult with the CPG in the preparation of the Corporate Plan and in the drafting of the Council's draft budget. The CPG may also request the Chief Executive to provide a report to it on any matter relating to a function of the Council.
