Dear Warwickshire County Council,
Dear WCC FOI Team
I understand you have a duty to handle Code of Conduct complaints about Councillors at WCC and at town/parish councils in your area, as specified at s28(6) and s28(7) Localism Act 2011.
For year 2023 only, please can you provide the total number of Code complaints that were:
1) Received from members of the public
2) Received from others (Councillors and Officers etc)
3) Referred to and assessed by your Standards Hearing Committee or Governance Panel
4) Decided upon or recorded as upheld
5) If upheld, the sanctions applied
It may be easier for you to provide this information in a table or spreadsheet format.
Thank you very much in anticipation of a clear and complete answer.
Yours faithfully
Adam Taylor
