Council style guide

The council has a style guide which is now in its fifth edition.

The style guide gives useful guidance on how to communicate more effectively by writing in plain English. It also sets out style and grammar rules for the council so that we all communicate consistently.

The guide includes tips, extra dos and don'ts, an expanded reading list, and 'before' and 'after' examples of letter and report writing. 
The latest edition of the council style guide [PDF, 3Mb] is now available.
