How to complain about a Member of the Council

Show all parts of this guide

1. Report a Councillor complaint

Our complaints process aims to provide a fair, transparent, reasonable, and proportionate approach to recording and resolving complaints made about Members. 

The aim of the complaints process is to provide the most appropriate resolution at the earliest opportunity and should include consideration of public costs against potential outcome. 

In most instances, the process will be followed as a step-by-step approach. Where we need to change this to meet the circumstances of a specific complaint, we will record and notify you and the other people involved of the changes we make to the process and the reasons why. 

Any reference to ‘in writing’ includes email but does not include any electronic text or messaging services.
