Llanrwst Town Council
Guidance from the Public Services Ombudsman for Wales
This revised guide from me as Public Services Ombudsman for Wales provides an overview of the Model Code of Conduct (“the Code)” introduced in 2008 (as amended on 1 April 2016). It is intended to help you as a member to understand your obligations under the Code. The Code applies to all members and co-opted members of local authorities, community councils, fire and rescue authorities and national park authorities in Wales. As a member, you are required to sign up to it as part of your declaration of acceptance of office. The Code does not apply to the actions of authorities as a whole, or to the conduct of their officers and employees. There is a separate code of conduct applying to officers of local authorities in Wales.
