Code of Conduct

The City of Perth first established a Code of Conduct in 1990, with the last update being in 2017 to reflect changes in legislation and new transparency and accountability measures. The Code of Conduct is designed to:

  • Assist Elected Members, committee members and employees in maintaining the highest standards of conduct and behaviour.
  • Attract the highest level of confidence from Council’s stakeholders.

In addition to setting out the principles, the Code also outlines:

  • Other conduct definitions under the Act, such as those relating to misuse of position, improper direction, breach of confidentiality and conflict of interest.
  • City of Perth values and ethical principles.
