Councillor Conduct complaints process
The City of Brisbane Act 2010 (CoBA) sets out the process to be followed if Council receives a complaint about the conduct or performance of a Councillor in carrying out their official duties. This process helps to provide transparency, accountability and good governance. It holds Councillors accountable for upholding acceptable standards of behaviour.
A Councillor Conduct Review Panel (CCRP) is convened to hear and decide complaints of alleged inappropriate conduct or misconduct by a Councillor.
Register of Councillor Conduct Complaint Outcomes
Section 180 of the CoBA requires Council to keep a Register of Councillor Conduct Complaint Outcomes. This is kept in the Office of the Chief Executive. The public may view the part of the record that relates to outcomes of written complaints. To arrange a suitable time to view the register you can:
- phone Council on 07 3403 8888 and ask for the Councillor Executive Support and Governance Services Manager
- email the Office of the Chief Executive.
To get a copy of the code, contact Council.
