Review of Councillor Code of Conduct

The Local Government Association (LGA) has committed to reviewing the current model member code of conduct, as recommended by the Committee on Standards in Public Life’s report into Local Government Ethical Standards. The LGA has undertaken a consultation with local authorities on a draft Model Member Code of Conduct.

Arrangements have been made for Warwickshire County Council’s Audit and Standards Committee to provide a consolidated response to the consultation on behalf of the organisation. Members have also been encouraged to respond individually. The consultation closes on 17 August 2020. The LGA’s conclusions will help to inform Warwickshire County Council’s review of its Member Code of Conduct.
