CORNWALL COUNCIL

APPOINTMENT OF TOWN AND PARISH COUNCIL REPRESENTATIVES and LAY MEMBERS TO CORNWALL COUNCIL’S STANDARDS COMMITTEE

Do you believe in the importance of high standards of conduct in local councils? If so, you may be interested in joining Cornwall Council’s Standards Committee to help maintain and promote such standards.

The Standards Committee are looking to appoint to fill recent vacancies and require two town and parish council representatives and one lay member to sit on the Standards Committee. To be eligible to be a town and parish council representative you must be a member of a town or parish council in Cornwall and not a member or officer of Cornwall Council. To be appointed as a lay member you cannot have been, in the last five years, a member or officer of Cornwall Council, or a member of a town and parish council in Cornwall.

For both roles previous experience of an ethical standards regime, whilst not essential, is an advantage.

These are voluntary roles, but a small allowance may be payable and there will be travelling and subsistence expenses.

If you think you meet these criteria further information and an application form can be requests from Simon JR Mansell MBE, Assurance Service, Cornwall Council, Treyew Road, Truro, TR1 3AY email: simon.mansell@cornwall.gov.uk.uk

The closing date for applications is 12 Noon on 12 September 2017
