This Committee promotes and maintains high standards of conduct by District Councillors, Town and Parish Councillors and Co-Opted Councillors across the Arun District by encouraging them to observe the Members’ Code of Conduct. Membership of the Committee consists of Members of Arun District Council and independent persons. For details of forthcoming meetings see our calendar.
Since 8 May 2008, the Standards Committee has been responsible for considering any complaints made that a Councillor may have breached the Members’ Code of Conduct. A Local Assessment Panel comprising members of the Committee and an independent person will consider complaints requiring assessment.
Code of conduct
All Councillors, whether they represent Arun District Council or a Town/Parish Council within the Arun District, have to abide by a Code of Conduct. If you believe that a Councillor has fallen short of the standards of conduct expected by the Code they signed up to, you can make a complaint to the Arun District Council’s Monitoring Officer.
To find out more about the Members’ Code of Conduct and how to make a complaint see Complaints Against Councillors.
