The Council's Constitution sets out how it operates, how decisions are made and the procedures which are followed to make sure these are efficient, transparent and accountable to the people the Council serves. It's the key guide and 'rulebook' for how the Council, its staff and elected Members fulfil their roles and responsibilities.

The Constitution is updated periodically. View the latest version by selecting the most recent date from the list below. Parts are updated at different times and this is indicated at the bottom of the pages of each section.
