The council's constitution
In delivering services and performing their duties, all councils work within a wider legal context which says how they should operate - this includes the Human Rights Act, Local Government Acts and rules on standards and probity. A council's constitution is a local expression of the way in which it will operate within this wider framework.
The law requires some of these processes, while others are a matter for the council to choose.
Salford City Council's constitution sets out how the City Mayor and the council operate, how decisions are made and the procedures which are followed to ensure that these are efficient, transparent and accountable to local people.
