Each local council in England and Wales is subject to a Code of Conduct and the individual code for a council can be found on their own websites.
ChALC provides a number of Model Documents which include:
Cheshire West & Chester have amended the Notification of Interests form slightly, regarding the line for signing and dating the form. Please be aware of this change when asking individuals to complete. This will make it easier to cover the signature which will be redacted before publication.
Cheshire East Council have been consulting with town and parish councils on adopting the new LGA model code of conduct. The deadline for comments is 12th November 2021 and we will report the outcome.
Should members wish to discuss their obligations under the code they can contact ChALC in confidence to do so. Please look at our training webpage for details of Code of Conduct training sessions available.
The previous Government Department (DCLG) provided initial guidance on the declaration of interests which may be of interest. The Guidance can be found here.
