Decision details


Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


(1) That the content of the report be noted.


(2) That the Councillor Code of Conduct for Trafford be approved.


(3) That the adoption of the Councillor Code of Conduct be recommended to the Council.

Reasons for the decision:

To ensure that the final adopted Code of Conduct for Councillors is fit for purpose, provides clarity on expected behaviours and manages and reflects public expectations.

Alternative options considered:

For the Council to retain its current Code of Conduct – but commence its own review and update any associated documents. This option is not seen as the best use of resources that the LGA has again taken a lead on this, consistent with the recommendations from the Committee for Standards in Public Life and the LGA have also indicated they will annually review the Code and provide guidance on interpretation.
