Council Constitution

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.
