Show all parts of this policy

1. Purpose of the policy

The Council has always set itself high standards of honesty and probity. Although the instances of fraud and theft are rare, and the Council is not aware of any corruption, this policy is the Council’s stance on these matters. The Committee in Public Life have produced a report, which sets out seven principles of public life (see Appendix 1). The Council endorses these principles, which apply to everybody who is involved with the work of this Council, including:

  • Councillors
  • Employees
  • Contractors
  • Consultants
  • Suppliers and partners
  • Customers and residents who deal with the Council. 

In addition, the Council expects the citizens of East Devon to be honest in their dealings with the Council.
