Outcome

Referred to Standards Committee

We received a complaint that a member (“the Member”) of Bridgend Town Council had breached the Code of Conduct.

The complainant was concerned that the Member had: failed to declare a personal and prejudicial interest in a Council meeting; had taken part in a discussion in the Council meeting when he should not have done given his interests; and that by taking part in the discussion, he had tried to influence a decision on the matter discussed to gain an advantage for his wife.

We referred our report on our investigation to the Monitoring Officer of Bridgend County Borough Council for consideration by its Standards Committee.

This summary will be updated following the Standards Committee’s decision.
