How to complain about a councillor
Councillors must follow a code of conduct. The code seeks to ensure that councillors observe high standards of conduct which are consistent with the principles of conduct in public life, namely selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership.
The code also requires councillors to register and disclose their financial and non-financial interests. The code is part of the Royal Borough's constitution.
If you want to complain about a councillor who has not complied with the code, you should write to the Chief Executive:The Chief Executive
Royal Borough of Greenwich Town Hall
If a complaint involves a potential breach of the code, and it merits an investigation, it will be referred to the Head of Law and Governance.
The law requires the Royal Borough to appoint an Independent Person, and must have regard to their view after any investigation and before reaching a decision on a complaint.
The Royal Borough has established a Standards Committee. Its role is to promote high standards of conduct and to deal with complaints about councillors who have not complied with the code.
