Code of Conduct

The Localism Act 2011 requires the council to adopt a Code of Conduct for members that is consistent with the following general principles of public life: selflessness, honesty and integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness and leadership. Hayle Town Council also expects its members to observe the following principles: personal judgement, respect for others, duty to uphold the law and stewardship.

Confidence in local democracy is a cornerstone of our way of life. It can only be achieved when elected and co-opted members of local authorities are seen to live up to the high standards the public has a right to expect from them.

A full copy of the Code of Conduct adopted by Hayle Town Council on 1 November 2012 is available here.

Local Government Transparency Code 2015 Information

The Local Government Transparency Code was issued to meet the Government’s desire to place more power into citizens’ hands to increase democratic accountability and make it easier for local people to contribute to the local decision making process and help shape public services.  Transparency is the foundation of local accountability and the key that gives people the tools and information they need to enable them to play a bigger role in society.

The Transparency Code sets out the minimum information/data that local authorities should be publishing, the frequency by which it should be published and how it should be published.  A copy of the Department for Communities and Local Government’s (DCLG) Local Government Transparency Code 2015 can be found here:
