    Newport Constitution
    Wednesday, 4th March, 2020

    No. Item


    Newport City Council has adopted a constitution that sets out how the Council operates, how decisions are made and the procedures that are followed to ensure that these are efficient, transparent and accountable to local people. The law requires some of these processes, 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 at the end of the document.
