A group of Cornwall councillors want to give citizens the right to recall councillors who have “seriously breached the Code of Conduct”. 

This would mean that a councillor who had broken the rules would be forced to stand for re-election before their term of office ended, giving local people far greater power to hold their politicians to account. 


The Sustainable Communities Act gives people and local councils the right to work together to submit proposals to central government to help communities tackle the problems they face. If the Council were to propose the right to recall under the Sustainable Communities Act, central government could not ignore this request. 

Can you take a few moments to write to your councillor(s), asking them to propose a right to recall under the Sustainable Communities Act? To get started, fill in your details by clicking on this link: Local Works

Please note you can select Cornwall as your country.
