Councillor Code of Conduct 

The Northern Ireland Local Government Code of Conduct for Councillors (the Code) sets out principles and rules of conduct which councillors must observe.  If you have evidence that a councillor may have breached the Code of Conduct you can complain to the Northern Ireland Local Government Commissioner for Standards (the Commissioner).  The Commissioner is independent of government and the council and her investigations are conducted at no cost to complainants.

If for any reason to wish to make a complaint about a Councillor, further information on the Code and the process that applies to complaints received by the Commissioner is available in the Useful Documents below or via the Commissioner’s website, link also below.
