Read the Councillor Code of Conduct 2020
This Code is a statement of how Councillors will behave and work with the Brimbank community, Councillor colleagues, and Council officers. The purpose of the Code is to set out the principles, values, standards and behaviours that will guide Council collectively, and the Councillors individually, in undertaking their duties and obligations as set out in the Act, and all other applicable legislation. This Code is intended to set a high standard of conduct in order to ensure good governance and maintain public trust in Council. As custodians of a major metropolitan city, the Mayor, Deputy Mayor, and Councillors, hold important leadership roles.
The Councillors’ Code of Conduct was reviewed and adopted by resolution of the Brimbank City Council on 21 April 2020. This Code was developed in accordance with Section 76C of the Local Government Act 1989. Our Councillors have signed the Code, are committed to working together to govern Brimbank effectively, and adhere to the principles of good governance.
