Legal and Democratic Services

The service is led and managed by the Chief Legal Officer who, as the Council's Monitoring Officer, is responsible for ensuring the legality of any decisions and with ensuring that members are aware of and comply with the Members' Code of Conduct.  

The Legal service provides professional, high quality legal advice and services across the Council.   Democratic Services ensure that the county council has modern and fit for purpose governance arrangements which enable Members and Executive Directors to take decisions in a timely way and with all relevant information.
