Complaints about Dorset County Council Councillors
All Councillors have to comply with a Code of Conduct. If you think that a County Councillor has breached the Code, you can complain and we will look into the matter.
In the first instance, consideration will be by Jonathan Mair, the County Council's Head of Legal and Democratic Services and Monitoring Officer.
The Monitoring Officer will consider your complaint in consultation with the Chairman of the Standards and Governance Committee and decide whether:
- it is suitable for informal resolution, or
- appropriate for investigation, or
- should be forwarded to Dorset Police as it relates to a member's disclosable pecuniary interests or
- no action should be taken
Please note that the Monitoring Officer will only deal with complaints about the conduct of a member of the County Council. Complaints about service delivery or Council officers are not covered by the members' Code of Conduct would need to be dealt with under the County Council's general /complaints Procedure.
