Report on code of conduct adopted by the Parish Council on 6 August 2012, and arrangements for the register of parish councillor interests


33.1         The Committee considered a report of the Monitoring Officer reporting back on the instruction of the Committee to consult with Rottingdean Parish Council over the new standards regime required by the Localism Act 2011. The report included details of the Code of Conduct adopted by the Parish Council, and the arrangements for the register of Parish Council Members’ interests. By way of introduction the Lawyer, Oliver Dixon, stated that Rottingdean Parish Council had adopted the same Code of Conduct as the City Council, and this included an amendment to Standing Orders such that a Member would be required to leave a meeting during the consideration of an item of which they had declared a disclosable non-pecuniary interest. Mr Rhodes, a Rottingdean Parish Councillor, was also in attendance and expressed his gratitude on behalf of the Parish Council to the Lawyer and Monitoring Officer.


33.2         RESOLVED – That the Committee note the report.
