The Constitution sets out the rules and procedures under which the council operates.
The Constitution has the important purpose of providing a guide for local people, businesses and other organisations to understand how the council's decision-making works. It is also a handbook for the councillors and staff who are directly involved in the business of the council. The Constitution has been formally approved by the council and will be kept under review and updated from time to time.
The governance model plan (pdf format, 526Kb) shows how governance at Oxfordshire County Council works subject to the provisions of the Constitution.
