Code of Conduct

Councillors' Code of Conduct

All Members of the Council are required by law to complete a Register of Members' Interests within 28 days of being elected or appointed to office. This requirement is set out in the Localism Act and also applies to Town and Parish Councillors.

In 2022, the parish council adopted the Shropshire Council model Code of Conduct.

Councillors (Members) must register Disclosable Pecuniary Interests of their own and of their spouse/partner in a public register of interests. These include:

  • details of their employment or business
  • contracts between them / their firm and the Council
  • interests in land in the Council's area
  • details of any significant shareholdings in companies with a place of business or land in the area covered by the authority

Members must not participate or vote in matters considered at meetings of the authority which affect their Disclosable Pecuniary Interests.

Councillors must also register Other Registrable Interests

The Registration of Members' Interests can be viewed on-line by opening the web page for each individual Member. The full Register is maintained by the Monitoring Officer and is available for inspection, by appointment, at the Shirehall during normal office hours.

Great Ness and Little Ness Parish Council has adopted a Code of Conduct in accordance with the Localism Act that can be viewed by clicking on the document below:
