NEW CODE OF CONDUCT FOR MEMBERS
The Tyne and Wear Integrated Transport Authority has adopted a new Code of Conduct that regulates the conduct required of all elected members and voting co-optees.
The Code defines the standards of conduct required of members in carrying out their duties.
You can read the new Code by clicking here or on the link found below.
The ITA was required to have a new Code of Conduct by section 27 of the Localism Act 2011.
ARRANGEMENTS FOR DEALING WITH COMPLAINTS AGAINST MEMBERS
The Standards Committee has agreed a set of Arrangements for dealing with standards allegations against members under the Localism Act 2011. These Arrangements explain how you may make a complaint that an elected (or co-opted) member of the ITA has failed to comply with its Code of Conduct, and how the ITA will deal with your complaint.
The ITA is required to have such arrangements in place by Section 28 of the Localism Act 2011.
LOCAL CODE OF CORPORATE GOVERNANCE
