If the Monitoring Officer and Independent Person decided to send a complaint forward for investigation then it would go to a hearings panel who would follow the Local hearings procedure.
As a result of the Covid-19 outbreak the Council is facing added pressures.
As such, it has been decided to pause its work on investigating any new Standards complaints due to the added administrative pressures it entails whilst distracting the Council from delivering its priority services.
All complainants will be notified and the Council will maintain records of contact so it will resume work on the complaint(s) when appropriate.
