Member Code of Conduct

The Localism Act 2011 abolished the 'Standards Board regime' and replaced it with a more locally focused process for regulating Member conduct. The new legislation requires Councils to promote and maintain high standards of conduct by their Members and Co-opted Members, but provides much more flexibility and choice. The introduction of the Act presented the Council with an opportunity to draw up a code of conduct that is both clear and relevant.

Surrey County Council has adopted the following Code of Conduct for Members (please see file attachments below).
