Wirral Borough Council’s Constitution sets out how
the Council operates, how decisions are made and the procedures
which are followed to ensure that these are efficient, transparent
and accountable to local people.
Some of the processes are required by the law, while others are a
matter for the Council to choose.
The Constitution is divided into 16 articles
which set out the basic rules governing the Council’s
business. More detailed procedures and
codes of practice are provided in separate rules and protocols
later on in the document. These rules and protocols may be
changed more frequently.
