Policy process

The compass party policy building process.

Stage 1

An outline and brief details of a policy are defined.  They indicate the overall thrust and direction of that policy, and fit within our core principles.  Policies at this stage are subject to revision to reflect our ongoing process of refinement and to react to comments and suggestions.

Stage 2

Experts and specialists are invited to help build and add detail to the policy defined in stage 1.

Stage 3

Compass members will be invited to comment on and suggest changes to the detail of the policy.

Policies significantly amended at this stage will return to stage 2.

Stage 4

The policy will be added to our draft manifesto for costing and prioritisation before publication.
