Code of conduct

Council Members must sign a declaration of acceptance of office including an undertaking to observe the code of conduct adopted by their council.  The code of conduct is a legal document that guides councillors, to make sure proper standards of behaviour are maintained.  The essence of the code is that councillors act openly and honourably in the public interest; they never use their position improperly to secure personal advantage or to avoid disadvantage for themselves, or any other persons.  Councillors should never bring themselves, as a member of the council, or the council itself into disrepute.
