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.
