Opportunity for an Independent Person at North East Lincolnshire Council

Pursuing High Ethical Standards in North East Lincolnshire – Can you help set the standard?

Under the provisions of the Localism Act 2011, the Council is seeking to appoint an Independent Person to assist the Council in promoting and maintaining high standards of conduct amongst its elected members and town and parish councillors.

The Independent Person’s views will be sought, and taken into account, by the Council’s Monitoring Officer before a decision is made on an allegation that may be investigated. The Independent Person may be consulted on other standards matters, including by the Councillor who is subject to an allegation.
