Note: Where nominations are made to outside bodies, the nominee’s primary duty is to act in the interests of that body, if they are serving in a position of management or control. They should also avoid potential conflicts of interest when matters relating to the affairs of the outside body are brought before meetings of the Parish Council. There are no such requirements in respect of Lead Roles or Contacts.
