Council Documents


Parish Councils work within a statutory framework and must operate within the law.

The work of Cotherstone Parish Council is governed/influenced by a number of documents, these include:

  • Standing Orders – which determine how meetings of the council are run and decisions are made

  • Code of Conduct – which sets out the behaviour which is expected of councillors in connection with their office and covers issues such as declaring interests.
