Introduction

The Constitution of the East Sussex Fire Authority includes the rules within which the Authority operates and the arrangements which the Authority has put in place to enable it to perform its duties and functions lawfully and transparently.  This Constitution has been divided into sections which group together the rules, procedures and policies which the Authority is bound by in the performance of its functions.

 

This Constitution was first approved and published in its current form in 2015.  It is regularly updated to ensure that the Authority’s arrangements represent current practice as well as legal requirements, and is published online as part of the Fire Authority’s commitment to transparency in the delivery of its functions.
