Fact Finding Report 2014-15

Decision Maker: Ethical Governance and Personnel Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Deputy Monitoring Officer presented a fact finding report which outlined the process so far in considering the complaint about a parish councillor.


Whilst members understood the reasons for the complaint being made, they felt that there would be no benefit to further investigation as the likely outcome would still be the need to weigh up the subject member’s word (and that of their witness(es)) against that of the complainant (and witness(es)).


It was suggested that it would be more appropriate to suggest other action, such as training and/or reminding members of the parish council about the way their comments may be construed by others.


It was moved by Councillor Moore, seconded by Councillor Cope and


RESOLVED – no further action be taken.
