Parish Councils are obliged to consider policies to guide their actions in a variety of circumstances. The most important of these are:
– the council’s Standing Orders, which guide procedure at meetings and other business undertakings;
– the council members’ Code of Conduct, which provides guidance regarding the standard of behaviour expected of members;
– the council’s Financial Regulations, which provide guidance on the management and control of the council’s finances.
The Parish Council is also required to issue a Publication Scheme that sets out what documents are available to view either on the website or by request.
