Purpose of committee

The Standards and Conduct Committee is responsible for promoting and maintaining high standards of conduct by members and co-opted members of Leeds City Council.  As part of this duty the Committee advises the Council in relation to the adoption, revision or replacement of the codes of conduct for members and employees of the Council.


The Committee may establish a Consideration Sub-Committee to consider and determine allegations that a member has failed to comply with the Council’s code of conduct, or that a member of a parish council in the Leeds area has failed to comply with the Parish Council’s code of conduct.  The Sub-Committee would consider whether any action needs to be taken in relation to a failure to comply with the code, and can make recommendations on what action might be appropriate.


Security Notice

As the result of a security review regarding Full Council and Committee meetings, there will be an increased security presence at Leeds Civic Hall.


As a condition of entry to Full Council and Committee meetings in Civic Hall, bag searches and the use of metal detector wands will be taking place. We may also ask visitors to the meeting to remove coats and jackets for searching.


We will also require any banners and signs to be left outside of the viewing gallery / meeting room – there will be a designated place to store these by reception.


Thank you for your understanding.
