Politically Restricted Posts

Certain posts are ‘politically restricted’, which means that individuals who hold them are effectively prevented from having any active political role either in or outside the workplace. This ensures that no perception can arise that their own personal or political opinions may have influenced or improperly interfered with their work.

The protocol outlines what this means in practice for the postholder, and the roles within the Council that these restrictions apply to.
