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.
