The District Council has adopted a Constitution that sets out how the Council operates, how decisions are made and the procedures that are followed to ensure that these are efficient, transparent and accountable to local people.  Some of these processes are required by the Law, while others are a matter for the Council to choose.

 

The Constitution is divided in 13 Articles - that 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.

 

The Constitution is kept under review and amendments are approved at the Annual Meeting of the Council in May each year, or at other times as necessary.
