Description

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

Section 440 of the LGA requires every council to adopt a code of conduct that incorporates the provisions of the Model Code of Conduct. A council’s adopted code of conduct may include provisions that supplement the Model Code of Conduct.

A council’s adopted code of conduct has no effect to the extent that it is inconsistent with the Model Code of Conduct. However, a council’s adopted code of conduct may prescribe requirements that are more onerous than those prescribed in the Model Code of Conduct.
