Policies and Procedures

In this section, you will find Gateforth Parish Council’s formal policies and procedures. These documents set out the legal framework within which the Parish Council will operate, the policies that it has adopted and the procedures that it will deploy in dealing with issues that arise.

There are three core documents that govern how the Parish Council, Parish Councillors and employees of the Parish Council (including the Clerk) must act, these are:

Standing Orders Code of Conduct Financial Regulations


The Policies and Procedures of the Parish Council, carry equal force with the three core documents, though where there is a conflict between them they would be overruled by a statement in any of the three core documents.
