Complaint about a councillor

All councillors should behave with the utmost integrity and propriety. They agree to abide by a Code of Conduct which sets out how they should behave when acting in their capacity as Members of the Council.

The Code sets out the complaints process and how a complaint will be investigated and determined by the Monitoring Officer.  They will acknowledge receipt of a complaint within 5 working days of receiving it and complete any preliminary enquiries within 28 days.  If the matter requires a formal investigation and hearing or is referred to an external agency such as the police, it may take considerably longer to resolve.

If you feel you have a complaint about the conduct of a Slough Borough Councillor or a Parish Councillor, please read the Councillor complaint guidance.

A complaint must be about why you think a Councillor has not followed the Code. A breach of the Code may include:

  • bullying
  • disclosing confidential information
  • disreputable conduct
  • improper use of their position
  • misuse of council facilities or resources
  • accepting inappropriate gifts or hospitality.

If you wish to make a complaint, please complete the Councillor complaint form.

Email the Monitoring Officer on if you  have any queries regarding the above information.
