DEMOCRACY: The hunt is on for an independent person to oversee investigations into complaints about elected councillors.

As a result of the Localism Bill Northants County Council is adopting an new code of conduct and a new standards committee to enforce it. NCC also has to appoint a number of co-opted, non-voting members to the standards committee.

The deadline is Friday, August 31, call 01604 366813 or email phanson@northamptonshire.gov.uk for more details.
