Protocols

DRAFT Death of a national figure

In the event of the death of a senior national figure or local holder of high office then certain actions will need to take place in a short space of time. Hythe Town councillors and officers need to be prepared and rehearsed should such an event take place. This protocol outlines the requirements, people involved and sequence of actions that will be required. Although the protocol is based on good practice, it is still in draft form, and council may resolve to make changes to it.

DRAFT Civic ceremonial

This protocol has been prepared to provide general guidance for incoming town mayors and deputy mayors on their roles and procedures when undertaking approved town council, civic functions and attending meetings of full council. Although the protocol is based on good practice, it is still in draft form, and council may resolve to make changes to it.
