Part 5 - Appendix 2 - Protocol on the relationship between Officers and Members of Gloucestershire County Council

Appendix 2 - protocol on the relationship between Officers and Members of Gloucestershire County Council of the Code of Conduct for Employees.

  1. The role of Officers in the course of their day-to-day duties as paid members of staff is to give effect to the Council’s strategy and the policies and proposals of Council bodies, such as the Cabinet and thereby deliver services to the people of Gloucestershire. They do this by providing advice on the options that are available to Members, planning, managing and actually delivering services to the community in accordance with the decisions that the Council or another Council body makes.
  2. Since Officers have a duty to serve the whole Council and to carry out its decisions and those of particular Council bodies, they should act impartially and always do their best to give them effect irrespective of whether they agree with them.
