This short guide is an introduction to the legal requirements about registering gifts and hospitality under the 2012 Code of Conduct for all town parish councillors whether elected or co-opted.

Please note that the code of conduct does not apply to the clerk or proper officer as they are council employees.

The code does apply where the clerk is also a councillor for that parish.

The guide is intended for residents, clerks and councillors.
