North Horsham Parish Council’s Code of Conduct is based on Horsham District Council’s model document which has at its core the ‘Nolan Principles’, the involvement of an independent person in the investigation of allegations of misconduct, a register of Members’ Pecuniary interests and a criminal offence of failing to declare or register Pecuniary Interests.The Code of Conduct includes provisions relating to Disclosable Pecuniary Interests as contained within the Regulations made under the Localism Act 2011.
The Code of Conduct was originally adopted in July 2012 and slightly amended when it was reviewed January 2017. A notice of amendment can be seen here.
The Parish Council reviewed the document again in May 2019 but made no revision.
