Delivering good governance in local government

This framework is based upon the following six core principles of good governance:

  1. Focusing on the purpose of the authority and on outcomes for the community and creating and implementing a vision for the local area.
  2. Members and Officers working together to achieve a common purpose with clearly defined function and roles.
  3. Promoting values for the authority and demonstrating the values of good governance through upholding high standards of conduct and behaviour.
  4. Taking informed and transparent decisions which are subject to effective scrutiny and managing risks.
  5. Developing the capacity and capability of Members and Officers to be effective.
  6. Engaging with local people and other stakeholders to ensure robust public accountability.
