Code of Conduct Reviews

All local councils in New South Wales are required under legislation to adopt a Code of Conduct which regulates the conduct of staff and elected officials. Under the Code, independent reviewers are appointed to assess, investigate or mediate complaints about elected officials.

Our Director of Legal, Governance and Mediation has been appointed as an independent conduct reviewer on over ten councils Code of Conduct Panels on the mid and north coast of New South Wales. Since appointment to these panels, Emma has conducted Code of Conduct reviews relating to alleged breaches of the Code by elected officials. 

These reviews resulted in findings about the conduct of the officials and recommended actions to be undertaken to address the identified issues.
