Promoting high standards
Councils may establish Standards Committees, as part of the ethical framework for local authorities established by the Localism Act 2011. The aim is to promote and maintain high standards of ethical conduct among elected and co-opted members.
The role of this Committee is to advise Haringey Council on the adoption of a Members' Code of Conduct, update and monitor the Code as necessary and to be responsible for implementing the Code and providing training for Members on ethical conduct.
