As required by the Local Government Act 2000, our constitution sets out how the Council operates, how decisions are made, and the rules and procedures followed to ensure that these are efficient, transparent and accountable to local people.

The Council continually revises the constitution to reflect new governance arrangements, organisational structure and service responsibilities for Cheshire West and Chester. The current version includes updates and revisions as of 11 December 2015.
