WCBC Governance Code

Corporate Governance refers to the processes by which organisations such as the Council are directed, controlled, led and held to account. It is also about culture and values - the way that councillors (members) and employees think and act. In summary, if management is about running the Council, corporate governance is about seeing that it is run properly.

The Council is a complex organisation which affects all who live and work in Wrexham and businesses and organisations that are based here. It is therefore essential that there is confidence in our corporate governance, and the Council must therefore ensure that:

The Council is therefore committed to good corporate governance – to doing the right things in the right way for the right people in a way which is timely, inclusive, open, honest and accountable. This Code sets out Wrexham County Borough Council’s approach to achieving and maintaining good corporate governance. It follows guidance produced by the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) and the Society of Local Authority Chief Executives and Senior Managers (SOLACE).
