Governance & Policies
In this section you can access a wide range of information and documents relating to the council's decision making processes and the legal framework it operates within.
Local authorities are required to adopt a code of conduct, which sets out rules governing the behaviour of their Members and satisfies the requirements of the Localism Act 2011. All elected, co-opted and independent members of local authorities, including parish councils, are required to abide by their own, formally adopted, code. The code of conduct seeks to ensure that members observe the highest standards of conduct in their civic role. The code is intended to be consistent with the seven principles: selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership.
Standing Orders are the written rules of a local council that relate to the internal organisational, administrative and procurement procedures and procedural matters for meetings. They are not the same as the policies of a council but they may refer to them. A local council must have standing orders for the procurement of contracts.
