Following the Localism Act 2011 from 1 July 2012 all councils are responsible for their own standards of conduct.
In North Lincolnshire, the Standards Committee also covers the area’s many parish and town councils.
The North Lincolnshire Standards Committee includes seven North Lincolnshire councillors and two independent persons (non voting) and one co-opted member (non voting).
As provided for in the Localism Act the council has appointed an Independent Person (and one reserve) whose role is to be consulted by the Monitoring Officer, or the Committee as appropriate, on decisions as to whether to investigate a complaint, whether a member’s conduct has constituted a breach of the code and if so what action should be taken against the member.
