Standing Orders & Policies

Standing Orders (SOs) are the Council’s guidelines for its smooth operation, and include rules of procedure laid down in legislation and additional regulations chosen by Council. The SOs are reviewed at least annually to ensure they reflect good practice and any new legal requirements which have arisen. In addition, Council may adopt policies for specific areas of its work or duties when necessary.
