APPOINTMENT OF INDEPENDENT PERSON
The Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority is
required to appoint an Independent Person to
assist in promoting and maintaining high standards
of conduct amongst its appointed Members.
The Authority is responsible for dealing with complaints that any of its
Members have breached the Authority’s adopted Code of Conduct. The
Independent Person will be consulted on the decisions to investigate
complaints, and before the Authority makes a decision on an investigated
complaint. The Independent Person may be consulted on other matters,
including by the Member who is the subject of the allegation.
In 2015, the role of the Independent Person was extended by new
Regulations. These Regulations require any proposal to dismiss senior
officers of the Authority to be considered by a Panel comprising at least two
Independent Persons to enable them to make recommendations before the
proposal is considered by the Authority.
A vacancy has arisen for an Independent Person to act in the absence or
unavailability of the other appointed Independent Person, for a period of
four years from June 2018.
Travel and subsistence expenses will be paid for the persons appointed.
For further information and an application form please visit the Authority’s

email email@example.com; or Clare Bevan on 01969 652322,
The closing date for receipt of applications is Tuesday 8th May 2018.
