Every town or parish council may have different policies, procedures, bylaws, and regulations to follow but there are some overarching principles every fair-minded council should adhere to when operating in their community.
The purpose of the Model Code of Conduct is to create and maintain public confidence in the role of member and local government, and to encourage good conduct between councillors.
Fiona Anthony, a solicitor from nplaw, took part in our Scribefest 2020 series to explain all you need to know about the Model Code of Conduct and her views on it.
