What is a Code of Conduct?

This document provides the Councillors (Members) with the expectations for their behaviour as Councillors. There has recently been a review of the document nationally following comments about the efficacy of the Code.

The Code is effectively exercised by the Monitoroing Officer at East Staffordshire Borough Coucnil. It is to them that complaints about Coucnillor behaviour are sent. To this end it is sensible for the parish council to adopt an identical code to the Borough’s.
