Information about councillor misconduct
Most code of conduct breaches are dealt with by councils. However, the misconduct provisions of the Local Government Act 1993 allow the Office of Local Government to also investigate code of conduct breaches. Councils must refer complaints about some types of breaches to the Office for action. Councils may also refer serious misconduct to the Office for a stronger penalty after it has been dealt with under the council’s code of conduct .
