Standards and Code of Conduct of Members

Last Updated:

The Council is committed to promoting the highest standards of conduct by members and has adopted a Code of Conduct for all members and co-opted members as part of its constitution.

The Code requires that all members and co-opted members notify the Monitoring Officer of any Disclosable Pecuniary Interests. Copies of these notifications, and those of Parish/ Town Councillors, may be viewed via the Register.

The Council has adopted arrangements under which allegations that a councillor may have breached their authority's code may be investigated and determined. These arrangements apply not only to the Borough Council, but also to all Parish & Town Councils within the Borough.

To assist the Council in discharging these arrangements, two independent persons have been appointed following public advertisement.

If you have any queries please contact The Monitoring Officer - email:
