Standards regime overview
Although there is no statutory requirement for us to have a standards committee, we have set one up which will deal with standards issues and case work.
We have appointed an Independent Person, Mr David Tweddle, to assist us in promoting and maintaining high standards of conduct among elected members and town and parish councillors.
His role is to be consulted on the decision to investigate complaints. He may also be consulted on other standards matters, including by the member who has made an allegation made against them.
