Local protocol breach
What if I wish to complain that a Member has breached one of the New Forest National Park Authority’s local protocols?
We have adopted a number of local protocols which regulate various aspects such as the working relationship between our Members and officers and the protocol for Members of the Planning Committee when dealing with planning matters.
Complaints that a member has not acted in accordance with a local protocol must be in writing and may be directed to one of our Members or an officer. The recipient will immediately refer the complaint to our Monitoring Officer who is responsible for monitoring the conduct of our Members. The Monitoring Officer will contact you in due course.
A full description of the procedure we will follow on an alleged breach of a protocol by a member is set out in our guidance on this subject, which is available through the Publication Scheme.
