Committees & Working Parties

The law and parliament require that all councils have Standing Orders. Those parts of the Standing Orders in bold type cannot be amended except by legislation. All other Standing Orders are the result of custom and practice; good practice; and guidance from other organisations such as the National Association for Local Government and the Society of Local Council Clerks.

The Town Clerk for Wisbech (as the Council's Proper Officer in law) is the custodian of these Standing Orders but it is the responsibility of each elected member to acquaint themselves with Standing Orders and to show a proper regard for Standing Orders at all times. As the Council's Responsible Financial Officer, the Town Clerk is also responsible for this Council's finances. Members should refer to the Council's Financial Regulations for more detailed Guidance.

Part One of Standing Orders is a procedural guide for those Chairing meetings of Wisbech Town Council. Part Two are the Council's Standing Orders. Throughout these Standing Orders the word 'Council' means Wisbech Town Council, unless otherwise stated.
