How the council makes decisions


We are a public service organisation which is led by elected councillors and we follow a cabinet model.

Our constitution sets out:

  • how we operate
  • how decisions are made
  • how councillors are chosen for different roles
  • the rules and procedures we follow to ensure we are accountable to local people
