Councillor Code of Conduct
The Localism Act 2011 required all local authorities to adopt a ‘Code of Conduct’ setting out the standards of behaviour expected from local councillors.
The Code of Conduct ensures that all councillors observe the highest standards of behaviours when carrying out their duties.
The council’s Standards Committee is responsible for considering any complaints that a councillor may have breached the Code of Conduct.
Making a complaint about the conduct of a councillor
