Councillor Code of Conduct
We adopted our current Councillor Code of Conduct (PDF, 828KB) on 14 February 2017 in accordance with the Local Government Act 1989.
On 30 August 2016 we set up the Conduct Reference Group Terms of Reference and Operating Guidelines (PDF, 33KB), to operate within the Code of Conduct.
Councillor Child Safe Policy
We adopted a Councillor Child Safe Policy (PDF, 146KB) on 26 November 2019. The Policy outlines expectations for Councillors when interacting with children and young people and our responsibilities in identifying, responding to and reporting child abuse.
To help Councillors perform their duties, we developed a Councillor Civic Support and Expenses Policy (PDF, 106KB).
It details our policies in areas including:
