Standards Committee

The Council’s new Standards Committee has been set up as a result of the Localism Act 2011 and is tasked with promoting and maintaining high standards of conduct by Councillors and assisting them to observe their newly adopted Code of Conduct.

Codes of Conduct seek to ensure that Councillors are open, fair and transparent in the conduct of their official duties, that they respect others in the conduct of their public lives and ensure that any decision making on behalf of their Council is properly carried out.

Allerdale Borough Council's Code of Conduct can be found in the downloadable documents section at the bottom of this page.

Committee make-up 

The committee is made up of seven Borough Councillors and three non-voting Parish / Town Councillor co-optees. There is also an Independent Person who will be consulted at various stages in the process and may be invited to attend meetings.

The current Standards Committee membership can be viewed on the Standards Committee details page.

Individual Parish Clerks should be contacted regarding the codes of conduct for parish councillors.
