The Committee exists to promote and maintain a high standard of conduct by County Councillors and co-opted members. It is politically balanced and includes 3 persons who are not Councillors and are entirely independent of the Council.
Members of the public may participate by presenting a petition, asking a question or making a comment having given appropriate notice (at least by 9.00 am on the morning prior to the Standards and Ethics Committee date).
The Council has a Code of Conduct that sets out the rules governing the behaviour of its Members. All elected Councillors, co-opted and independent members of the Council with voting rights (collectively called "Members"), are covered by this Code and are expected to follow it.
