Code of conduct for Councillors

We provide a range of nationally recognised qualifications (local government specific) and council-specific non-accredited short courses as well as other professional development training options.

The Code of Conduct sets out the principles and standards of behaviour expected of Councillors and Mayors when carrying out their roles, responsibilities, and obligations as elected representatives for their communities. By adhering to the behaviours set out below, Councillors will increase public confidence in local government and Council decisions. Topics covered will include:
