Democratic data- Council constitution -Performance reporting
The Council Constitution sets out how we operate, how we make decisions and the procedures which are followed to ensure that these are efficient, transparent and accountable to local people.
Some of these processes are required by law, while others are a matter for the Council to choose.
The constitution is divided into 16 articles which set out the basic rules governing Council business.
Our Forward Plan presents a breakdown of decisions to be made over the next one to four months. This includes 'key decisions' which the strategic committees, neighbourhood committees and officers acting under delegated powers intend to take.
The Forward Plan lists the most significant decisions which are due to be taken by the Council in the near future, whether by the Strategic Committees which are responsible for cross borough policy and service development, local Neighbourhood Committees, or Officers acting under delegated powers.
The plan includes:
- a short description of the decision to be made
- who will make it
- when the decision will be taken
- details of the planned consultation with local people and other stakeholders and partners
- contact details for further information including reports and background papers
The Plan is updated weekly.
