The Local Government Act 1993 requires every Council to adopt a Code of Conduct that incorporates the provisions of the Model Code of Conduct for Local Councils in NSW (“the Model Code of Conduct”) developed by the Department of Local Government.
The Tamworth Regional Council Code of Conduct comprises three Parts: Context, Standards of Conduct and Procedures:
- Part 1: Context, establishes the purpose and principles that are used to interpret the standards in the Code. This Part does not constitute separate enforceable standards of conduct
- Part 2: Standards of Conduct set out the conduct obligations required of Council officials. These are the enforceable standards of conduct
- Part 3: Procedures, contains the complaint handling procedures, complaint assessment criteria and the operating guidelines for the conduct review committee/reviewer. This Part should be used to guide the management of complaints about breaches of the Code
