City of Stonnington Child Safety Commitment Statement

The City of Stonnington has a zero tolerance to child abuse and is committed to the safeguarding of all children and young people.

The Councillor Code of Conduct aims to strengthen the working relationships between Councillors.

The Code of Conduct recognises that a good working relationship between Councillors and Council officers is the basis for a solid and effective team, to represent the community and provide leadership and guidance for the future of the municipality.

Since being implemented in October 2001, the Code of Conduct has undergone regular reviews in line with legislative requirements.

Councillors when sworn into office, made a declaration before the Chief Executive Officer to uphold and observe the Councillor Code of Conduct. The Councillor declaration for the oath of office must be signed, witnessed by the Chief Executive Officer and recorded in the Council minutes within one month of the swearing in ceremony.

Failure to make the declaration within the specified time will result in the Councillor being unable to continue in office.

Upon any future amendments to the Code of Conduct, all Councillors will be required to make the declaration again, within one month of the amendments being adopted.
