Members' Code of Conduct - concerned about a councillor's behaviour?

The Code of Conduct is a way of ensuring the business of the council is undertaken in a professional manner and clarifies and reinforces the ethical standards in local government. It defines a set of practical guidelines and clearly sets out the councillor's responsibilities as a representative of the residents of Epsom and Ewell. It also requires that appropriate interests in jobs, property and businesses are declared.

This council adopted its Code of Conduct for Councillors in April 2019. You can download a copy of the Members' Code of Conduct or find it in Part 5 of our constitution.

If you feel that a councillor has breached the code of conduct, you can make a complaint by letter or by email to the following address, A guide for for the Member Complaint process is available on this webpage.
