The Code of Conduct Panel met on Thursday, 28 January, 2021 to consider a Code of Conduct complaint brought against Cllr Richard Price, a Crowthorne Parish councillor. The Panel considered evidence presented to them in a report written by the Investigating Officer, Mr Richard Beaumont, as well as verbal submissions given at the hearing.
Cllr Price had accepted one of the breaches of the Code brought against him in the report, and had apologised for this incident, but felt he was not at fault for the other incidents raised.
The Code of Conduct Panel found Cllr Price had breached the Code of Conduct and concluded his behaviour towards an employee of Crowthorne Parish Council had been unacceptable. The Panel felt a revised apology from him was not a reasonable sanction.
Instead the Panel recommended a number of sanctions, including the removal of Cllr Price from his Finance Champion role, and that he should be prevented from acting as chair of any Crowthorne Parish Council committees or groups for at least one year. A full list of sanctions can be found on our website.
CPC’s Chairman is aware of the press release and does not wish to publish any comment or response on behalf of the Parish Council.

PARISH COUNCIL OFFICES REOPENING FROM TUESDAY 20 JULY 9am - 2pm
We have put in place various measures to comply with the latest government guidance and to keep our staff and the public safe. Hand sanitiser is available and a Perspex screen has been installed at the customer service counter. If people wish to wear a face covering they are able to do so and are encouraged to if visiting our indoor facilities when they are particularly busy. If you visit us & there is already someone being served at the counter, please queue in the corridor towards the main door or wait outside if you prefer - the space at the counter is very small & enclosed so we have implemented this measure to enable everyone to keep a comfortable distance apart.
Our staff are working on a rota to minimise the risk of the team all getting a Covid ‘ping’ if one member is tested positive so we will have fewer staff on site which could mean it takes a little longer than usual to serve at the counter and answer the phone.
We look forward to seeing you after 15 months working from home!
We are pleased to confirm that the Crowthorne Parish Council office is reopening from Tuesday 20 July 9am to 2pm and will thereafter be open Monday to Friday at these times.
