Every relevant local authority in England, including Stratford-on-Avon District Council (SDC) and all town and parish councils within the district, must by law have a code of
conduct to regulate the conduct of its respective councillors.
Such codes can only apply when a councillor is acting in their role as a councillor, either as an elected or co-opted member of a council. In some limited circumstances it might
also apply where someone who is not a member of a council is co-opted as a member of a committee or sub-committee of a council.
A new code of conduct came into operation for councillors at Stratford on Avon District Council on 1 May 2018.
The Monitoring Officer has also approved an adapted version of the Stratford on Avon Distriuct Council Code as a model for use by town and parish councils within the
district.This code is also accompanied by its wn guidance.
Avon Dasasett Parish Council has formally adopted this version and a copy of the code and guidance is available below.
