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.
