Corporate Governance is how we demonstrate our responsibility and accountability to our customers. Check out our Code of Corporate Governance (Word Document)
We use the definition of CIPFA (Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy) and SOLACE (Society of Local Authority Chief Executives):
“Corporate Governance is the systems by which local authorities direct and control their functions and relate to their communities”.
We have agreed a local Code of Corporate Governance and will review existing practice and procedure to identify areas for improvement. This review will lead to an action plan to introduce and sustain best practice.
