Policies of the Council
As part of its governance review, Ledston Parish Council is reviewing all of its policies over the coming weeks and as soon as they are approved they will be posted on the website. Copies of policies adopted are below.
Standing orders are the written rules of the parish council. They are essential to regulate the proceedings of a meeting. A council may also use standing orders to confirm or refer to various internal organisational and administrative arrangements. The standing orders of a council are not the same as the policies of a council but standing orders may refer to them. Local councils operate within a wide statutory framework.
Code of Conduct
Ledston Parish Council has adopted the Leeds City Council Code of Conduct to promote and maintain high standards of behaviour by its members and co-opted members whenever they conduct the business of the Council, including the business of the office to which they were elected or appointed, or when they claim to act or give the impression of acting as a representative of the Council. This Code of Conduct is based on the principles of selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty, and leadership.
