Complain about a councillor
We are committed to promoting and maintaining high standards of conduct amongst our Members and have adopted a Code of Conduct setting out the conduct we expect of our Members as they carry out that role.
Making a complaint
If you wish to make a complaint about the behaviour of a Buckinghamshire councillor, complete the online form, email or write to:
The Monitoring Officer
Walton Street Offices
Email [email protected]
The Monitoring Officer is the senior member of the council’s staff who has responsibility for administering the system in respect of complaints about member conduct.
- only written complaints will be considered
- we will require a name and a contact address or email address to acknowledge receipt of the complaint and keep you informed of progress. The Council does not normally investigate anonymous complaints, unless there is a clear public interest in doing so
- only in very exceptional cases will the Council be able to progress a complaint to an investigation without disclosing the identity of the complainant to the Member
- if the complaint is primarily about a corporate decision or a service complaint, it will be referred for handling under the Council’s general complaints procedure
