Mon, 19 Feb 2024 10:00

Time: 10.00am to 11.30am

This webinar covers the statutory role of Monitoring Officers (MO) in local authorities. Under the Localism Act 2011, MOs also undertake that role for parish sector councils. MOs are the lynchpin of the arrangements for upholding ethical standards in their council, but they are also the MO for parishes in their area too. The session will cover the requirement under the Localism Act 2011 for all local authorities to adopt a Code of Conduct consistent with the Nolan principles, and what must be included in the members register of interest form. It will also touch on the role of the MO in handling complaints about parish sector councillors.

(Please note that this session is a general session; not focused on North Yorkshire. It is for YLCA members in South, West and North Yorkshire).
