Standing orders are the written rules of a local council and are essential to regulate the proceedings of a meeting. A council may also use standing orders to confirm or refer to various internal organisational and administrative arrangements. The standing orders of a council are not the same as the policies of a council but standing orders may refer to them.
Malvern Town Council's current Standing Orders, adopted 3 October 2018, can be seen here.
