The County Forum brings together Flintshire County Council and all 34 Town and Community Councils to build on and improve working relationships, with a strong commitment to work jointly for the benefit of the citizens of Flintshire.
The Shared Community Charter:
Flintshire County Council and all the Town and Community Councils have developed and signed up to a ‘Charter’ which sets out how we aim to work together for the benefit of local communities whilst recognising our respective responsibilities as autonomous and democratically elected statutory bodies.

Training - Raising Awareness:
Please find attached some materials that you may find useful for raising awareness of the code with your councillors. The first item is a set of slides that cover the background to the code and those behaviours that will put it into effect or breach its requirements. The second item is a link to a video prepared by the Public Services Ombudsman for Wales on his role in relation to the code of conduct. Both were prepared for the new intake of councillors following the elections in May 2017.
