Councillor Complaint Decision Notices

Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council

Councillors Code of Conduct and Investigations into Councillor Complaints

The Localism Act 2011 made changes for the consideration and investigation of Councillor Complaints by the Council. From 1 July 2012 the council was required to have in place "Arrangements" for dealing with allegations that Councillors had failed to comply with the Code of Conduct and also to investigate and determine those allegations. All complaints must be made in writing to the Monitoring Officer.

The council has now adopted a Code of Conduct that sets out rules governing the behaviour of its councillors

The Code of Conduct covers areas of individual behaviour such as councillors not abusing their position or not misusing their authority’s resources. In addition, there are rules governing disclosure of interest and withdrawal from meetings where councillors have relevant interests. Councillors are also required to record on the public register their financial and other interests.

In addition, the town and parish councils within the Borough of Basingstoke and Deane have each adopted a Code of Conduct. Copies of these can be obtained from the relevant Town or Parish Clerk.

After a decision has been made and forwarded to the appropriate parties the decision notice will be made available for public inspection, unless the Monitoring Officer determines that it should remain confidential or it contains exempt information. Decision Notices relating to complaints can be found below:
