This guide sets out a ‘thinking toolkit’ of the types of issues that councils, both members and officers, should think when considering governance change. It does not aim to set out the legal and procedural steps which you will need to undertake to do it (which are for the most part set out in legislation), but it will provide you with the tools to think about the challenge.
