Code of Conduct and Good Governance

Councillor Code of Conduct 2016


On 13 December 2016, East Gippsland Shire Council reviewed and adopted an updated Code of Conduct, as required under the Local Government Act 1989.


The Code is an agreed standard for Councillors about acceptable behaviour to help them deliver good governance with integrity, diligence and respect.


The Code:

  • aims to foster good working relationships to enable Councillors to work together in the best interests of the local community; and
  • sets out the standards of conduct required of East Gippsland Shire’s elected representatives to build and maintain public confidence in the integrity of Local Government.

The Act states a Councillor is not able to act as a Councillor until the person has:

  • taken the Oath of Office; and
  • read the Councillor Code of Conduct and made a written declaration that they will abide by the Code.
