Standing Orders are a set of rules that provide a formal framework for the conduct of local authority meetings. They also outline the Council's agreed principles of behaivour within meetings.
All councils are required by the Local Government Act 2002 to adopt a set of standing orders that control the way the council's meetings are conducted. Elected Members must abide by the Standing Orders adopted by the Council.
