Complain about a councillor
We're committed to promoting and maintaining high standards of conduct amongst our members. We've adopted a Code of Conduct setting out the conduct we expect of our members as they carry out that role.
If you wish to make a complaint about the behaviour of a Buckinghamshire councillor, you can do this online.

- 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. We do not normally investigate anonymous complaints, unless there is a clear public interest in doing so
- only in very exceptional cases will we 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
