The Standards Committee deals with issues relating to ethics and the conduct of Authority members.
It meets two to three times a year or as required. For dates and venues, please click on Committee Meetings - Papers and Dates.
Meetings are open to the general public, and the Authority allocates up to 15 minutes at the start of each meeting to allow members of the public the opportunity to ask questions and/or make statements that relate to the work of the appropriate committee. If you would like to make a statement or ask a question, please contact a member of the Secretariat team or download a copy of the Guidance Note here.
Papers for all committee meetings are available to the public five working days prior to the meeting and can be consulted at the Authority's offices in Grassington or Bainbridge. We will also make them available on this website prior to the meeting, when the agenda and papers can be downloaded by clicking the links for the relevant meeting.
If you would like to consult agendas and papers for meetings that took place before 2006, please contact our Secretariat Team at our offices in Bainbridge by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
