Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Director of Resources submitted a report for Committee to consider the revised Local Code of Corporate Governance.


The Code is reviewed and approved annually by this committee and is the Council’s forward-looking statement of how the governance culture of the organisation will be driven. Within the framework there are seven core principles that look to steer the application of good governance in everything that members and staff undertake by highlighting how their work on behalf of the council will be approached.


There were no further changes to the Local Code of Governance that was currently in place. With regard to embedding good governance within the organisation, endeavours would be made to raise awareness levels with staff and members covering the seven principles and the manner in which work should be approached as detailed in the Code.




Approve the reviewed Local Code of Corporate Governance as attached to the report.
