Ferret has taken the following from:

The Seven Principles of Public Life outline the ethical standards those working in the public sector are expected to adhere to. They were first set out by Lord Nolan in 1995 in the first report of the Committee on Standards in Public Life and they are included in a range of codes of conduct across public life.

The Nolan Principles -The Seven Principles of Public Life


Holders of public office should take decisions solely in terms of the public interest. They should not do so in order to gain financial or other material benefits for themselves, their family, or their friends.


Holders of public office should not place themselves under any financial or other obligation to outside individuals or organisations that might influence them in the performance of their official duties.


In carrying out public business, including making public appointments, awarding contracts, or recommending individuals for rewards and benefits, holders of public office should make choices on merit.


Holders of public office are accountable for their decisions and actions to the public and must submit themselves to whatever scrutiny is appropriate to their office.


Holders of public office should be as open as possible about all the decisions and actions that they take. They should give reasons for their decisions and restrict information only when the wider public interest clearly demands.


Holders of public office have a duty to declare any private interests relating to their public duties and to take steps to resolve any conflicts arising in a way that protects the public interest.


Holders of public office should promote and support these principles by leadership and example.

Ferret would ask readers to judge for themselves how many of the 7 Nolan Principles Jim Kenyon’s led Independent Hemsworth Town Council have broken and disregarded...

4 thought on “The Nolan Principles and Independent Hemsworth Town Council…”
  1. Well what’s left to say, they’ve flouted every single one, and the town clerk Draper has allowed them to. All involved should repay all monies they have misused, one way or another and get time at her majesty’s prisons.

  2. Perhaps this is another email that was sent and not read.
    Because a certain couple never read this, they’ve broken every rule.
    Maybe they need to go to spec savers.

  3. They can see well enough when they’re watching CCTV lol
