Code of Conduct for Councillors

In February 2021, Council adopted an updated Code of Conduct for Councillors.

The Code:

  • sets out the standards of conduct expected of elected representatives
  • endeavours to foster good working relations between Councillors to enable Councillors to work constructively together in the best interests of the local community
  • specifically seeks to lift the standard of behaviour of Councillors during Council meetings, Council briefing meetings and any other Council-related meetings which Councillors participate in from time to time
  • mandates Councillor conduct designed to build public confidence in the integrity of local government
