Standing Orders regulate the proceedings and business of the Council. The ones adopted by Bude-Stratton Town Council are based upon a model set of Standing Orders produced by the National Association of Local Councils. Those required by law are included together with others which have been adapted to meet the specific needs of Bude-Stratton Town Council e.g. to regulate the quorum required, order of business, etc.

The Towns Councils Standing Orders also include the Financial Regulations adopted by the Council. These contain a detailed framework of procedures that the Council must follow in order to maintain sound control of its financial affairs. The legislation which underpins the current financial regulations is contained in the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015.

The Committee ‘Terms of Reference’ set out the powers and areas of interest of each of the Committees of the Council. Some powers are devolved to individual Committees and the ‘Terms of Reference’ specify what these powers are.

In accordance with the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 the Town Council has adopted a publication scheme. The scheme specifies the core classes of information which Bude-Stratton Town Council publishes and which is available to the public.

In some cases information is excluded from publication by virtue of it being personal data under the Data Protection Act 1998.

In certain classes a limitation on the age of some documents has also been stipulated.  For the avoidance of doubt this does not mean information beyond that date cannot be obtained, it simply indicates that it is not available as a matter of course within the publication scheme.

From time to time Bude-Stratton Town Council may have surplus funds in its bank account. It is important that these funds are invested properly, with full recognition of the Town Council’s responsibility to the Council Tax payer, and with regard to the priority for security and liquidity of those investments.

The Town Council is required by the Local Government Act 2003 to have in place an Investment Policy.
The policy must be approved by the Town Council, but may be varied from time to time as circumstances alter.

This document sets out the Town Council’s policy for managing any investments that it makes.

The procedure to follow if you wish to make a complaint about the Council, the standard of service received from the Council or from a person acting on behalf of the Council.
