Constitution

The Constitution explains and regulates how the Council operates, how decisions are made and the procedures that are followed to ensure that the Council's activities are undertaken in a way that is efficient and transparent and that Councillors remain accountable to local people. The Constitution combines all the governance provisions that the Council is required by law to adopt.
