From 2002 until 2018 Hull City Council consisted of 59 councillors which are elected from 23 wards, each ward returning either two or three councillors. Following a review, in 2017, by the Local Government Boundary Commission this was reduced to 57 councillors from 21 wards effective from the 2018 elections; the council has several subcomponents with differing responsibilities: Cabinet: The Cabinet makes most day-to-day decisions. It consists of the council leader, council deputy leader, eight other councillors, all elected by the full council. Cabinet Committees: The Cabinet appoints councillors to Cabinet Committees to handle specific responsibilities, such as granting of contracts above a certain monetary value. Task Groups: The Cabinet can form temporary units called Task Groups to deal with specific issues.
These can contain members from outside the council, such as persons expert in the issue or members of the public. Area committees: These committees are responsible for different geographic areas of the city, they perform certain duties assigned. The Area Committees hold public area forums. Regulatory Committees: Required by law or by the nature of the function for which they are responsible; these functions include planning, standards, school government, civic affairs.
