Agenda item

Report of the Constitution Review Task & Finish Group


Members were provided with a report outlining the outcomes of the Constitution Review Task & Finish Group. The review considered both the legal requirements and also the practical elements that Members wished to see as part of the Constitution.


Members were advised that the final decision on constitutional amendments rests with Full Council. 


Members queried the implementation of some of the constitutional changes. Mr Griffiths advised that if ratified by Full Council, it is his intention to write to all Councillors providing them with a copy of the amended Constitution and outlining the key changes made.


Members specifically referred to member officer relations. It was confirmed that there will shortly be a member seminar on this item and it will also be built into the member induction programme 2022.


Following discussion, members were in support of the recommendations in the report to be placed before Full Council for consideration.
