NALC poll shows support for single code of conduct

Published 8th August 2018

The majority of town and parish councils support the introduction of a single, mandatory code of conduct, according to a new poll conducted by the National Association of Local Councils' (NALC). The research found 90% of those surveyed support the same code of conduct for all local authorities.

Nearly 70% would also like new powers to impose additional sanctions, with 60% saying current sanctions are insufficient to punish breaches of the code or deter future breaches.

Cllr Sue Baxter, Chairman of NALC, said: "In light of our research, we are asking the government to invest £2m towards a national training programme that would see all new councillors undertake training on ethical standards and the code of conduct as part of their induction."
