Government's £150 rebate scheme

Eligible households across Allerdale will begin to receive their £150 energy cost council tax rebate from today (Thursday 12 May). 
 
More than 40,000 households will receive a one-off payment, with the first batch of payments for those in council tax bands A to D who pay for their council tax via direct debit.
 
There are some households whose Direct Debit details have not been verified and these will follow on as soon as possible. Households who don’t pay by direct debit will receive letters containing information on how they can collect the rebate from their local post office in the coming weeks.

Standards Committee

The Council’s Standards Committee promotes and maintains high standards of conduct by Councillors and assists them in observing the Code of Conduct.

The code seeks 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.

Standards 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.

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

How to make a complaint about a councillor

If you think that a Borough councillor, parish councillor, Co-opted Member or former councillor has breached the Code of Conduct, you should send your complaint to the Council using the complaint form.

The complaint should set out the name of the councillor, the name of the relevant Council, the facts as you see them and the details of the alleged breach of the Code of Conduct.

You should try to provide as much evidence as possible with your complaint.

Please email the Monitoring Officer with details of your complaint.
