A BODY responsible for monitoring the behaviour of councillors is looking for new members.

Hertsmere Borough Council's standards committee is looking to appoint two independent members

The committee meets about four times a year and members are entitled to a small allowance.

Committee chairman Mark Haftel said: "Being part of a standards committee is an interesting and challenging role which provides a chance to have a real say in the ethical governance of your authority.

"We are encouraging members of the public from all walks of life to apply."

To be eligible you must not be a serving borough councillor or officer, or a relative or close friend of either a councillor or officer.

Councillors and officers serving on other authorities are also unable to apply.

The closing date for applications is March 11 and interviews will take place in the week beginning March 30.
