Code of Conduct


In accordance with the Localism Act 2011 ss 26 to 37, all Councillors must observe a local Code of Conduct to ensure high standards in the way they undertake their official duties.

At its meeting held on 24 August 2022, Layham Parish Council adopted the new Model Councillor Code of Conduct 2020 produced by the Local Government Association (LGA).  The aim of the new Code is for it to be adopted by all levels of local government, effectively making it a national Code.  The LGA has also produced Notes for Guidance, providing useful interpretation of the Code.
