NEWS RELEASE

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.
