The purpose of the Constitution is to set out how the County Council works and how it makes decisions.
The County Council is responsible for a wide range of services. It must provide some of these services by law; others are discretionary.
The County Council's role is to deliver services to the people of Hampshire (and sometimes beyond) in an open, transparent and cost-effective way; acting in the best interests of Hampshire and its members of the public as a whole
