8.1 The Monitoring Officer reported that the purpose of the meeting was to receive the Investigating Officer’s report setting out her findings into alleged breaches of the Code of Conduct by a Churt Parish Councillor. The members were asked to consider the report to decide whether or not the matter needed to be progressed to a full hearing.

8.2 Having fully considered the Investigating Officer’s report and clarified issues, the Committee came to the view that this complaint had been raised more due to a lack of understanding of procedures, and poor record keeping. The Monitoring Officer was asked to advise the Churt Parish Clerk on procedures that would ensure public confidence in their processes.
