The Code of Conduct for Local Councils in NSW is made under section 440 of the Local Government Act 1993 (“LGA”) and the Local Government (General) Regulation 2005 (“the Regulation”).

It sets the minimum standards of conduct for council officials. It is prescribed by regulation to assist council officials to:

  • understand and comply with the standards of conduct that are expected of them
  • enable them to fulfil their statutory duty to act honestly and exercise a reasonable degree of care and diligence (section 439)
  • act in a way that enhances public confidence in local government
