Information about Constitution

All major councils are required by law to prepare and keep an up to date constitution. The constitution explains and regulates how the council operates, how decisions are made and the procedures which are followed to ensure that these are efficient, transparent and accountable to local people.

Please note that as from 29 March 2021 any references to director of children and wellbeing or assistant director safeguarding and family support should be read as the director of children’s services.
