Code of Conduct

The Town's Code of Conduct(PDF, 510KB) sets standards of of behaviours for Elected Members, committee members and employees in their duties.

The Code complements the principles adopted in the Local Government Act 1995 to achieve:

  • better decision-making by local governments;
  • greater community participating in the decisions and affairs of local governments;
  • greater accountability of local governments to their communities; and
  • more efficient and effective local government.

The Code provides a guide and a basis of expectations for Elected Members, committee members and staff.  It encourages a commitment to ethical and professional behaviour and outlines principles upon which individual and collective local government responsibilities may be based.
