  • Any executive decision where the outcome will have a significant impact on a significant number of people living or working in an area comprising two or more District Wards.

A decision maker may only make a key decision in accordance with the requirements of the Executive Procedure Rules.

Decision Notice

A decision notice for each key decision is published within five days of it having been made and is available for public inspection on the Council's website and at the district libraries and at the Council Offices, Ebley Mill, Stroud, Glos GL5 4UB.

The Constitution

The Council's Constitution provides a set of rules on how the Council operates, including how the Council will make decisions and the procedures which have to be followed to ensure that these are efficient, transparent and accountable to local people and businesses.

 

Some of the processes are required by law, whilst others are practices that the Council has decided to adopt. Citizens have a number of rights in their dealings with the Council and these are set out in detail in the Constitution.
