Governance procedures

Scheme of Administration

Our decision-making structure is based on a Cabinet style model, which considers business from all of our services and departments.

Apart from the Cabinet, we still have a number of committees that deal with other matters such as education, planning and licensing.

Read the Scheme of Administration (PDF) [159KB]  for full details of all our committees and their areas of responsibility.

Scheme of Delegated Functions

Our Scheme of Delegated Functions sets out all those powers that can be used by particular officers without the need for committee approval.

Standing Orders

The conduct of our meetings and committees is governed by Standing Orders, which gives guidelines about the role of the Provost, the rules of debate and voting, among other information.

Members of the public are welcome to attend all meetings except where items of a private or confidential nature are being considered.
