The Constitution sets out how the Council
operates, how decisions are made and the procedures which are
followed. Some of these processes are required by the law, while
others are a matter for the Council to choose. The Constitution
came into effect on the 30th May 2002 and is periodically reviewed
and amended by the Council as necessary. There may be a slight
delay in updating the web site version, but Legal Services staff
can advise you whether any particular part of the version published
on our web site is the very latest version.
The Constitution is divided into 15 Articles
which set out the basic rules governing the Council's business.
More detailed procedures and codes of practice are provided in
separate rules and protocols at the end of the document.
