In 1995, in order to ensure high standards of conduct, the Committee for Standards in Public Life established the Seven Principles of Public Life . These apply to anyone who works as a public office-holder, including Parish Councillors.
Parish/Town Councils are required to establish a Code of Conduct. The Salehurst & Robertsbridge Parish Council Code of Conduct for Members 2012 is based on the Seven Principles; it can be seen here.
The Seven Principles of Public Life were reviewed and updated in 2013; they can be seen here.
Registration of Interests14>
Under the Code of Conduct, Members (Councillors) are required to register their 'Disclosable Pecuniary Interests' and 'Other Interests' as outlined in Appendix A and B of the Code, within 28 days of becoming a Member.
