East Cambs District Council is looking to recruit somebody to hear complaints about breaches of code of conduct against town or parish councillors.
Following the resignation of one of their appointees, the district council wants to recruit a co-opted non-voting parish councillor member.
Their role will be to serve on any hearing panel to consider complaints of code of conduct breaches.
The Council recruited two parish councillors to undertake this role on the basis that one of these co-opted members would be at any panel meeting for a complaint relating to a town or parish councillor and their views, together with those of the independent person, who also will be present will be taken into account by the three district councillor members serving on the panel before they make a final decision.
A co-optee gets an allowance of £250 a year plus travel to any hearings.
