Policy Library

Council policies, procedures, guidance and strategies are designed to ensure high standards are maintained at all times.

As part of our commitment to be open and transparent, all of our policies and strategies are being made available through a policy library. The library will bring together the definitive versions of all of these documents into a single point of reference. The policy library is currently populated with our approved policies and strategies. Further documents are being added on a daily basis.
