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. By virtue of their membership of Council bodies, some County Councillors may be able to exert more influence over certain kinds of Council business than others but they can only do so through a decision made by the committee or committees that they belong to. By law, the Leader is entitled to delegate functions to its Members. The Leader has determined that Cabinet Members (but not other Members) have power to make decisions that would bind the Authority to a particular course of action. It follows that in law, Members without decision making powers acting in their individual capacity as County Councillors are equals, each having the same rights and responsibilities.
