Members’ Code of Conduct

Members’ Code of Conduct

National Park Authorities have a duty to promote and maintain high standards of conduct by Members and Co-opted Members. Section 27 of the Localism Act 2011 came into force on 1 July 2012 and as a result, the South Downs National Park Authority has adopted a revised Code of Conduct for Members and Co-opted Members from that date.

The Authority has adopted procedures for the Handling of Complaints received under the Member Code of Conduct.

For ease of reference, the complaints handling process is also shown on a Complaints Handling Flowchart.


"The Downs...too much for one pair of eyes, enough to float a whole population in happiness."
