Constitution

Local councils, unlike principal authorities are not required by law to adopt a constitution, however they do need to adopt Standing Orders and Financial Regulations and to have other governing documents such as a Member Code of Conduct and a Publication Scheme.

Congleton Town Council have resolved to voluntarily adopt a Constitution which contains the statutory governance documents which it needs to publish as well as a number of other parts which will help to make its dealings more transparent to local people and businesses. Its purpose is to enable local people to understand how their Town is being governed and how they can become involved in the decision making. This first Constitution was formally adopted in April 2006, the 25th anniversary of the Town Council serving the Community. The Constitution is under constant review. The most up-to-date versions are listed below.
