New mayoral code of conduct could affect Lord Mayor Magid Magid

Sheffield’s first ever mayoral code of conduct has been drafted up, after a series of petitions were made to Sheffield City Council.

As things stand, there is little guidance over what the role requires, and the proposal aims to provide updated and clearer guidelines.

The code of conduct itself is not necessarily directed at Lord Mayor Magid Magid, but at all current and future Lord Mayors.

The recommendation from the city council’s scrutiny committee will go to full council next week.
