The Council has a Standards Committee made up of five Elected Members (Councillors), and five Co-Opted Independent Members. They provide a forum to examine and advise on Councillor conduct and the ethics that govern an individual whilst carrying out their role of Councillor. The five Co-Opted Individual Members are:
- Penny Rogers
- Andrew Reed
- Lynda Bourne
- David Holroyd
- Kate Lewis
The five Co-Opted Individual Members are consulted for any standards issues and for any complaints against an Elected Councillor.
