Guide How to complain about a councillor

2. Complainant confidentiality

When we receive a complaint, the councillor who is being complained about will, in normal circumstances, be told who has complained about them.

If you ask for your identity to be kept confidential,  the monitoring officer will consider your request before telling the councillor that a complaint has been made.

If the monitoring officer doesn't think it is appropriate to grant a request for confidentiality you will be offered the opportunity to withdraw the complaint rather than proceed with it.
