Council Controlled Organisations

We have a number of Council Controlled Organisations (CCO).

A Council Controlled Organisation is an organisation that Council has the ability to appoint at least 50 per cent of the directors, or holds at least 50 per cent of the voting rights.

If a Council Controlled Organisation operates a trading undertaking to make a profit, it is a Council Controlled Trading Organisation.
