CORNWALL COUNCIL APPOINTMENT TO CORNWALL COUNCIL’S STANDARDS COMMITTEE and APPOINTMENT OF INDEPENDENT PERSON
Do you believe in the importance of high standards of ethical conduct in local Standards Committee or becoming an Independent Person and involved with the procedure the Council has in place for considering Councillor complaints.
The Standards Committee are looking to recruit to its membership one Town and Parish Council Representative, to serve on the Committee and one Independent Person, who is not a committee member, but is required to give their views on complaints.
To be eligible to be appointed as Town and Parish Council Representative you must be a member of a Town or Parish Council in Cornwall and not a member or officer of Cornwall Council or an officer of a Town or Parish Council.
To be eligible to be appointed as an Independent Person you cannot have been, in the last five years, an elected member or officer of Cornwall Council or of a Town or Parish Council in Cornwall or a relative or a friend of any such person and you much be politically neutral.
For both roles an understanding of an ethical standards regime, whilst not essential, is an advantage.
These are voluntary roles, but a small allowance is payable and there will be travelling and subsistence expenses.
If you think you meet the above criteria further information, an application form can be requested from:
