Code of Corporate Governance

Planned maintenance to the Planning Portal

Due to an upgrade to the Planning Portal between 9.00am on Friday 24 November and 6.00pm on Saturday 25 November, you'll be unable to view documents online during this time.

Corporate governance is about the systems, processes and values by which councils operate and by which they engage with, and are held accountable, to their communities and stakeholders.

We are committed to demonstrating that we have the necessary corporate governance arrangements in place to perform effectively. Building on previous best practice, we have developed and adopted a refreshed approach to developing a Local Code of Corporate Governance which follows the latest guidance issued by the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) and the Society of Local Authority Chief Executives (SOLACE), entitled Delivering Good Governance in Local Government (2016).

This code brings together in one document the various governance and accountability arrangements currently in place.
