Standards and conduct arrangements for councillors

Councillors are required to promote and maintain high standards of conduct. We have adopted our own Councillor Code of Conduct (Part 5) and all councillors (including co-opted councillors) must comply with this code (opens in new window).

Town and parish councils will have their own adopted Code of Conduct.  Contact the town our parish council directly to find out the code they have adopted (opens in new window). 

Making a complaint

If you believe that a Waverley Borough, Parish or Town Councillor has breached their code of conduct, it is recommended that you first contact the Monitoring Officer using the details below to discuss your concerns.  

If you make a complaint it must be about why you think a councillor has not followed the relevant code of conduct.

If you wish to make a complaint about something else not related to councillor conduct, please see the our complaints page.

What happens next?

Waverley’s Constitution (Part 5) (opens in new window) sets out the arrangements for dealing with complaints about councillor conduct.

If you would like to discuss any concerns, or for advice, please contact the Monitoring Officer.
