Cheshire East Council is to update and streamline its constitution — the legal framework which governs the way the council operates and how its decisions are made.

The review will focus on refining current processes and procedures to maximise efficiency, governance and transparency. It will result in the production of a new constitution that will provide greater clarity around how the council operates and enable greater community engagement with the democratic process.

Although the council has made regular updates, it has decided upon a fresh and holistic approach to developing a new constitution.

The council commissioned Bevan Brittan Solicitors — legal advisers to the public sector — to carry out an initial review of its current constitution and report back.

As a result, the council's constitution committee has now appointed a sub-committee of eight elected members to progress the review and make recommendations for any changes that should be made.

Final proposals for a new constitution will go to full council for consideration.
