Code of Conduct

The Authority has its own Code of Conduct and all Combined Fire Authority Members (Councillors) are required to comply with all sections of the Code. Members are also expected to adhere to the national Core Code of Ethics which has been adopted.

A link to the Members Code of Conduct is below.

The Code is reviewed annually and subject to approval at the CFA AGM. 

You can read more information about the Core Code of Ethics here.

If you feel that a Combined Fire Authority Member has breached the Code of Conduct and wish to make a complaint of an alleged breach, you should submit this in writing to the Clerk and Monitoring Officer of the Authority. Please refer to the procedure in the document below. If you require any assistance and support to do this please let us know as soon as possible.

Once the form is completed please send it, along with any supporting documents, to:
