Decision details

Officers Code of Conduct

Decision Maker: National Park Authority

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Members considered an updated officer code of conduct and noted changes in relation to media and sensitive posts.  A member suggested that the Authority might consider a code of conduct for the public, in line with some organisations. The Chief Executive suggested that the other National Parks be contacted about this.


It was felt that the Delivery Director should be given authority to sign off press releases as well as the Chief Executive and officers would ensure this was aligned to other policies.


Some amendments were needed in relation to officer nomenclature, which would be implemented before publication.


RESOLVED:  To agree inclusions and amendments to the revised Officer Code of Conduct.
