Councillor Code of Conduct
The Local Government Act 1989 requires every Council to develop a Code of Conduct for Councillors that addresses principles of conduct and procedures for resolving disputes between Councillors.
The City of Port Phillip Councillor Code of Conduct (PDF 6.8 MB) was reviewed, and amendments were approved, at a Special Meeting of Council on 15 February 2017.
Council must review its Councillor Code of Conduct within four months after a general election. The review takes place at a special meeting called only for this purpose. At this special meeting, Council must approve any amendments to the Code of Conduct determined to be necessary in the review.
