Code of Conduct for Members

The standards expected of elected and co-opted Members

We are committed to promoting the highest standards of conduct by our elected and co-opted Members and have adopted a Code of Conduct as part of our constitution. The Code of Conduct is in keeping with the 7 Nolan principles in public life – selflessness; integrity; objectivity; accountability; openness; honesty and leadership.

If you believe that a member of the Council may have breached the Code of Conduct, you can make a complaint to the Monitoring Officer using the form below.  Each complaint will be assessed and if the Monitoring Officer decides that the complaint merits formal investigation, he will make the necessary arrangements for this to be carried out. Some breaches are a criminal offence and will be dealt with by the Police rather than the Council.
