Code of Conduct


In accordance  with the Localism Act 2011 ss 26 to 37, all Councillors must observe a local Code of Conduct to ensure high standards in the way they undertake their official duties. 

At the meeting of 11 May 2022, Lindsey Parish Council adopted the new code of conducts the new Model Councillor Code of Conduct 2020, as produced by the Local Government Association (LGA). The aim of the new code is for it to be adopted by all levels of local government which effectively makes it a national Code. It is hoped that all councils across England will move to the Councillor Code of Conduct developed by the LGA, following extensive consultation. The LGA have also produced Notes for Guidance, providing useful interpretation of the Code.


All Councillors have registered their interests with Babergh District Council and these are published on Babergh District Council's website.
