The Monitoring Officer submitted a report advising that the Standards Sub-Committee, at its hearing meeting held on 30
March 2015, had considered a report by the Investigating Officer which had concluded that Councillor W Ashley had breached the Authority’s Code of Conduct in relation to the matters identified. The Standards Sub-Committee had decided that the then Member had failed to comply with the Code and decided that formal censure by motion was appropriate.
Councillor T Page questioned whether a precedent had been set by investigating an anonymous complaint and asked that this be looked into.
Council approved the censure motion as now detailed.
RESOLVED - that (former Councillor) William Ashley be censured for his conduct in respect of the matters detailed by the Investigating Officer in his report to the Standards Sub-Committee meeting of 30 March 2015.
