Code of Conduct
The Localism Act 2011 (the relevant provisions of which came into force on 7 June 2012) abolished the national Code of Conduct and required Councils to adopt their own Codes consistent with certain principles.
This Council adopted its Code of Conduct on 17 July 2012. You can download a copy of the Code (pdf - 25kb) or find it in Part 5 of the Council's Constitution.
If you feel that a councillor has breached the Code of Conduct, you can make a complaint in writing or by email to:
The Monitoring Officer
Epsom & Ewell Borough Council
Councillors sit on Committees which decide the Council's policy direction and spending priorities and Panels which advise the Committees.
All Councillors are obliged to register certain financial interests. They are also obliged to record gifts and/or hospitality over the value of £100 they may receive in the course of their duties. These registers are available for inspection on-line by viewing an individual councillors profile available at the top of this page or in person at the Town Hall, Epsom.
All Councillors can be contacted via the Town Hall or directly via phone or email. Contact details can be found by selecting the links above.
Remember - it is YOUR Council! If you have questions, comments or views on anything we are doing (or not doing) let us know!
