Complaints about councillors
If you think a councillor or the City Mayor has breached the code, you can complain to our Monitoring Officer.
All councillors and the City Mayor follow a Code of Conduct. Please note that the Code of Conduct applies when councillors are on council business or otherwise in their capacity as a member of council. It will not apply to councillors' conduct of their private lives.
You can find a copy of this Code at the bottom of this page.

How your complaint will be dealt with
We have agreed a procedure for dealing with complaints, called Arrangements for dealing with standards complaints. A full copy of this is attached at the bottom of this page and will give you further information of the process involved.
Complaints that the Monitoring Officer cannot deal with
- council employees
- behaviour that took place before the person was a councillor
- the way the Council conducts or records its meetings
- actions or decisions taken by the council - this may be a matter for the Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman.
