What does the Standards Committee do?

All elected councillors (and any co-opted members) are subject to the code of conduct for councillors. The Standards Committee promotes and maintains high standards of conduct by councillors, co-opted members, and council officers.

The committee has a sub committee, which conducts hearings into allegations of breach of the code of conduct following an investigation report referred by the monitoring officer.

Full details of the responsibilities of the Standards Committee are in the constitution.
