People needed for county council standards committee

AN ‘independent person’ is wanted for Northamptonshire County Council’s newly-formed Standards Committee.

Responsibilities will include working with committee members and officers investigating complaints about councillors’ conduct and participating in local hearings into allegations.

The council is also looking to appoint a number of people to join its standards committee as non-voting co-opted members.

These people will undertake a different role to that of the independent person, participating in standards committee meetings and providing input into code of conduct issues.

For further details, contact Paul Hanson, Democracy Team, Northamptonshire County Council, Room 144, County Hall, George Row, Northampton, NN1 1DN. Email phanson@northamptonshire.gov.uk or call 01604 366813.

The closing date for applications is Friday, August 31.
