Model Member Code of Conduct

The Local Government Association has committed to reviewing the current model member code of conduct.


With more communication taking place remotely and online between members and residents, particularly through social media, there may be more difficult and heated discussions as some seek to express the fear, frustration and heightened emotions they are experiencing at this time. However, abuse, threatening and intimidatory communications continue to be unacceptable, and we have sought to address these issues in the draft code.

Your views are requested on the Local Government Association’s (LGA) model member code of conduct, as recommended by the Committee on Standards in Public Life’s report into Local Government Ethical Standards.
This consultation from the LGA runs from 8 June to 17 August 2020.
