Governance refers to the frameworks within which the Council works. It includes the ways in which the Council and its staff are accountable, their responsibilities and duties and the expectations as to their behaviour in meetings and beyond.  

All Parish Councils have to discharge their duties and powers within the law and according to their governance policies on the conduct of meetings and financial matters.
