Local Code of Corporate Governance

Meeting: 11/06/2019 - Cabinet (Item 78)

78 Local Code of Corporate Governance

Report by the Executive Directors.   

Supporting documents:


Cllr Richard Clewer, Cabinet Member for Housing, Corporate Services, Arts, Heritage and Tourism presented the report which proposed a new local code of conduct.





1.    That Full Council be recommended to approve the revised local code of corporate governance.


2.    That Cabinet approve the proposed process for developing the Annual Governance Statement for 2019.


Reason for Decision:


Councils are required to develop and maintain an up-to-date local code of governance. Wiltshire’s existing code is based on CIPFA guidance which has been updated. A new draft is attached based on the revised principles. This will have to be adopted by full council to replace the current constitution’s protocol 10.


It is proposed that progress on delivery against the code is reviewed by officers on a quarterly basis and that this informs the future development of the Annual Governance Statement for consideration by Audit Committee and Cabinet in due course.
