Last month, legislation was passed to introduce a Model Councillor Code of Conduct for all 79 councils across the state and require professional development training for councillors and mayoral training for mayors and deputy mayors. The changes will be in place following the elections in October.

Local Government Victoria is encouraging all Victorians to have their say on the content for the new code of conduct and mandatory councillor training.

The Model Councillor Code of Conduct describes the behaviours required by councillors. It will mean councillors know what is expected of them and hold them accountable.

Nillumbik Councillors currently perform their duties under a Councillor Code of Conduct that was developed after the 2020 council election.

The changes mean the new Model Code will provide consistent and uniform standards of behaviour across the state. The reforms also aim to place stricter processes around training for councillors after they take office.

To have your say, visit Engage Victoria.

The survey closes on 15 July.
