The Constitution

The Constitution provides an important means of enabling councillors, officers, citizens and stakeholders to understand how the council makes decisions and who is responsible for those decisions.

The Constitution is at the heart of the local authority’s business. It allocates power and responsibility within the local authority, and between it and others. For example, it delegates authority to act to individual officers. It also regulates the behaviour of individuals and groups through codes of conduct, protocols and standing orders.

Note: The reference throughout this Constitution to a “day” excludes Saturdays, Sundays, Bank Holidays, ad hoc Public Holidays and official Council holidays (which holidays include the period between Christmas and New Year plus St David’s Day).
