Complaints and Compliments about Councillors

When they take office our Councillors and co-opted Members are required to abide by a Code of Conduct made under the Localism Act 2011.

We have arrangements in place to deal with complaints that a Councillor or co-opted Member has failed to comply with the Code of Conduct which is set out in our Icon for pdf Constitution 2018 [3.59MB]

If you wish to make a complaint, please contact our Monitoring Officer, Tel: 01932 425640.  In his absence please contact our Deputy Monitoring Officer, Tel: 01932 425643.

We maintain public registers of complaints and compliments about Councillors.
