Conduct of Councillors and Public at Meetings

It is expected that at all times, both councillors and the public will be respectful in their communication and interaction with each other.  The Council's standing orders give full guidance on the conduct of Council meetings and business.

​Councillors are expected to:

  • Abide by the Code of Conduct at all times

  • Speak only at the invitation of the Chairman, after raising a hand to indicate a wish to speak

  • Withdraw from a meeting or debate where s/he has a discloseable pecuniary interest

  • Members of the Public are expected to:

  • Address the Council only during the specified time in the agenda for public speaking

  • Not behave in such a way that prevents the normal transaction of the business of the meeting

  • Speak respectfully to Councillors and other members of the public attending the meeting

​Failure on the part of any Councillor or Public to observe the conduct standards set out in the Code of Conduct or Standing Orders may result in the Chairman directing an individual to be silenced or excluded from the meeting, by resolution of Council.  Failure to comply with this request may result in the meeting being suspended or adjourned, or the Police being called if circumstances require this.
