Independent Persons Recruitment

The Localism Act 2011 requires the Council to appoint at least one Independent Person to support its Standards Committee. Currently, the Council has a ‘pool’ of three Independent Persons on which to draw support with regard to Code of Conduct allegations against Members and other standards matters. Those appointments expire on 14 July 2024. This report seeks Committee Members’ views on the recruitment process for appointing a new panel of Independent Persons.
