Code of Conduct for Councillors

£35 to Members
Code of Conduct for Councillors

 

The Code of Conduct and corresponding guidance sets out the minimum standards of behaviour expected. It is designed to encourage councillors to model the high standards expected, to be mutually respectful even if they have personal or political differences, to provide a personal check and balance, and to set out the type of conduct that could lead to complaints being made of behaviour falling below the standards expected of councillors and in breach of the code.

It is also to protect councillors, the public, local authority officers and the reputation of the local government. Find out how this works in practice.

Aims of the course

Come to understand

  • the reasons for members’ standards
  • why the council has adopted a code of conduct
  • the standards expected of council members
  • the meaning of ‘interests’ and how to register and declare them
  • what to do in meetings when there is a conflict of interest
  • what might happen when things go wrong!
