Updates to our constitution

13 May 2022

An updated version of our constitution has been published which incorporates a number of amendments.


The main changes are to:

  • include new Council Procedure Rules, a new Code of Conduct for Councillors and updated Members’ Allowances Scheme
  • incorporate the terms of reference for the new Vision Derbyshire Joint Committee
  • update the list of Trading Standards enforcement legislation
  • make minor amendments so that the constitution reflects:
    • the Managing Director role arising from new operating model
    • the duties arising under the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 and
    • the new Whistleblowing Policy
  • make minor amendments so that the constitution no longer refers to Cabinet member meetings (CabCos)
  • provide delegated authority to the monitoring officer to make minor amendments to the constitution
