Appeal Procedure

Report by the Town Clerk.

 ...  view the full agenda text for item 6.

Minutes:

The Sub-Committee considered a report of the Town Clerk relative to the procedure that would be followed by the Sub-Committee for an appeal by a Common Councilman against decisions of the Hearing Sub (Standards) Committee that there had been a breach of the Members’ Code of Conduct and sanctions should be applied.

 

It was noted that as the complaint against the elected member had been considered under the City Corporation’s former complaints procedure, rather than the new procedure which was implemented on 19 July 2018, the appeal process would also be managed based on the old procedure. Consequently, as there was no established procedure for the conduct of an appeal under the old complaints process, Members were asked to agree the procedure for hearing the appeal.

 

RESOLVED: - That –

(i)            the procedure for hearing the appeal by the Common Councilman by this Sub-Committee be approved and circulated to Members and all other relevant parties once drafted by Jonathan Swift QC (the Sub-Committee’s legal adviser); and

(ii)           the appeal hearing be scheduled to take place on 27 or 28 September 2018 subject to the availability of an Independent Person and room availability.
