Good governance - doing things properly

We provide vitally important services to our community and we are accountable and responsible for ensuring that it meets the highest standards with robust governance.

Our aim is to ensure that resources are directed in accordance with agreed policy and according to priorities. That there is sound and inclusive decision-making, with clear accountability to achieve the desired outcomes for service users and communities. 

As a Local Authority we have a responsibility for long-term sustainability, economic, environmental and the wellbeing of our residents and wider communities. 

Conduct of Councillors

A code of conduct helps to makes sure that our councillors do the right things in a timely, inclusive, open, honest and accountable manner.

Petitions scheme

If you're concerned about something the Council is responsible for, or that the Council can influence, you can submit a petition to the Council.
