The Council’s Constitution

Ashfield District Council has agreed a Constitution which sets out 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. Some of these processes are required by the law, while others are a matter for the Council to choose.
The Constitution is divided into 14 Articles that set out the general rules governing the Council’s business. More detailed procedures and codes of practice are provided in separate rules and protocols within the Constitution.
