We believe that we should be accountable for our activities and actions and a comprehensive governance system is in place to ensure that the Council is effectively regulated, conforms to good practice in its decision making and that our residents can challenge us and become engaged in democracy.

These are just some of the ways that both our Officers and Elected members are checked and how we show our accountability to you.

The Council's Operating Model

The way the Council conducts its business is changing fast, keeping pace with the need to adapt to face the rapidly changing context in which it is operating.

Over the past few years, we have evolved and now have fewer departmental divisions and continued partnership arrangements to move towards a structure which is more efficient and forward thinking.
