Standing Orders for Brasted Parish Council
Parish Councils are subject to the basic arrangements for the conduct of meetings and making decisions contained in Schedule 12 of the Local Government Act 1972.
The purpose of the Schedule 12 provisions and standing orders is to provide a system of control in the way Parish Councils conduct their business and make decisions. Such a system of control should provide a balance between the need to ensure an efficient, timely and effective means of decision making that is open and flexible, and the need to prevent the abuse of power and authority.
Standing Orders provide, therefore, procedures checks and balances that should ensure coherent and sound governance arrangements.
