Member Code of Conduct Consultation

I am contacting all Parish Council Clerks to please ask for your help to publicise and circulate the information below as widely as possible but in particular to your residents, Councillors and officers.


The Local Government Association (LGA) has created a Model Councillor Code of Conduct in response to a recommendation made by the Committee on Standards in Public Life in their report entitled Review of Local Government Ethical Standards. Their revised Councillor Code of Conduct aims to be concise, written in plain English, be understandable to members, officers and the public and is designed to:

* Aid members in all tiers of local government to model the behaviours and high standards that anyone would expect from a person holding public office.

* Articulate behaviour which falls below the standards that would be expected of council members.

* Help set a framework for public and councillor interaction, emphasising the importance of respect and that councillors and the public should be protected from bullying, intimidation and abuse.

EBC is considering updating its current Code of Conduct and adopting the LGA's recommended model and would like to hear the thoughts of Parish Councillors and officers and your residents on this proposal.

Details of the 12 week period of consultation, which is open until 5.00pm Monday 28 November 2022, can be found here and it includes access to an online survey which contains links to supporting and explanatory information.

For more information about the consultation please contact: EBC's Head of Law and Governance; Danielle.Hughes@Erewash.Gov.Uk.

Our allotments are now full, if you would like to be added to the waiting list please contact the Clerk.
