Business ethics and Code of Conduct

In April 2019 Council updated its Code of Conduct for staff to exclude the acceptance of any gifts.

Please observe this in your dealings with Ku-ring-gai Council staff – a thank you is all that’s required.

Council is committed to high ethical standards and Council's Statement of Business Ethics (pdf. 53KB) sets out the standards the Council requires of Council officials (Councillors, staff and delegates), contractors and their staff and other business associates.

The standards contained in this statement are based on the principals adopted in Council's Code of Conduct (pdf. 698KB) which also applies to appointed contractors and suppliers.

In dealing with our Council you are responsible for maintaining our high ethical standards and adhering to the principles contained in our Code of Conduct in all contracts.

Ku-ring-gai Council expects all parties to perform their duties with integrity, honesty and fairness.
