The Standing Orders contains two major sections.
Part I is intended as guide for those presiding at meetings of the Councils and its Committees and Working Partied and a source to refer to when there is a procedural difficulty during a meeting.
Part II provides a complete set of Standing Orders incorporating various new requirements, such as those to be observed under the new Code of Conduct. Even if Standing Orders have not been formally adopted, a chairman can use them as a basis for rulings on procedures if there is a dispute.
The financial regulations govern the conduct of the financial transactions of Normandy Parish Council.

Register of Interests
The Local Authorities (Members' Allowances) (England) Regulations 2003 (SI.2003/1021) is applicable to Normandy Parish Council.
Regulation 25 allows for a parish or town council to pay a basic allowance to either its chairman only, or to each of its elected members (the amount for the Chairman may differ from that of the other members). The allowance is not a salary – it is to cover the general expenses of being a local councillor. Specific travelling and subsistence expenses are covered separately, and can be claimed when appropriate.
Some parish councils do choose to pay a basic allowance to their elected members. Normandy Parish Council, in common with many others, does NOT pay any Basic Allowance to members.
The Employee Handbook contains all Policies and Forms relating to Personnel and HR matters - it includes such topics as Health and Safety, Recruitment, Pay, Sickness and Absence.
