Conduct of councillors and how to make a complaint

How do I complain about a councillor?

Members of the public concerned about the conduct of a councillor, or councillors, can make complaints directly to Adur District Council or Worthing Borough Council.

All councillors have to keep to a Code of Conduct to ensure that they maintain the high ethical standards the public expect from them. If a complainant reveals that a potential breach of this Code has taken place, Adur District Council or Worthing Borough Council may refer the allegations for investigation or decide to take other action.

The complaint should be set out in the complaint form appropriate for the Council the councillor sits on:
