This page lists the meetings for Standards Committee Hearing Panel.
The Standards Committee is responsible for
upholding and monitoring standards in public life and ensuring that
Councillors adhere to the Code of Conduct for Members.
If a complaint is received about a Councillor
a panel is arranged to hear the complaint and consists of three
Members of the Standards Committee, and must always include one
Independent Member. The complaint may go through several stages
before reaching a Hearing Panel, which is the last stage in the
Hearing Panels are the only stage in the
process which is held in public and the complainant and Councillor
present their cases to the Panel Members for determination.
