Code Of Conduct
New laws governing the conduct of elected members in local government in England come into effect on 1 July 2012: with local (parish and town) councils required to have their own local codes of conduct for their 80,000 councillors. From 1 July 2012, members of parish councils have new mandatory obligations in the Localism Act 2011 regarding disclosable pecuniary interests.
The National Association of Local Councils recommends that local councils should adopt a new code of conduct to take effect on or after 1 July 2012, as soon as possible.
The code of conduct for local councils must be based on the seven Nolan principles of public life: selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership.
