Our brief, as defined by CRAG Proposal F, adopted in Edinburgh, was to “simplify the rules of the Council, replacing them with a short statutory set of rules supported by a set of operating principles and procedures. All of the necessary rule changes required by the foregoing proposals (A to E) will be incorporated into this work. The new rules …. should be compliant with Charity Commission guidance”
Before moving on to the detailed task of drafting the necessary rule changes, we needed to ensure that our work was being guided by sound principles. We therefore published a Terms of Reference, together with a Scope and Approach document, which were the subject of a consultation between 22nd September and 6th October.
These documents have now been adopted as the basis for our future work, although the Scope and Approach document was applied with some modifications to reflect the comments received, which you can read on our Consultation page.
