Should I raise a concern?

If you have any concerns about illegal or illegitimate practices involving the council, you will need to identify the issue carefully. You must be clear about the standards against which you are judging practice. Before raising a concern, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Is it legal?
  • Does it contravene professional codes of practice?
  • Is it against Government guidelines?
  • Is it a breach of the members code of conduct?
  • Is it about one individual's behaviour or general working practices?
  • Have you witnessed the incident?
  • Did anyone else witness the incident at the same time?

Please note, if you have any comments or complaints about how we provide services, then you should read our complaints page, or report them directly to the relevant department.
