Mayor, Councillors and Committees

Councillor code of conduct

The Code of Conduct applies to all Middlesbrough Councillors (elected members), the Mayor, co-opted members of the council and independent (that is, non-elected) members of the council's Standards Committee.

The Code of Conduct only applies when a member is acting in his or her official capacity, not when they are acting in a personal or private capacity.

If you believe that any member has acted in a way that breaches the Code of Conduct, you can complain to the Council's Standards Committee. Simply fill in the complaint form and return it to:

Members' Office
PO Box 503
Town Hall
