A north Norfolk parish councillor is still the vice-chairman of her authority, after her colleagues refused to accept recommendations made by the district council to reprimand her and remove her from a position of leadership.
Laura Stango, vice-chairman of Mundesley Parish Council, was found to have breached the code of conduct after appearing twice before North Norfolk District Council's (NNDC) standards committee following complaints of bullying and failure to declare an interest at separate parish council meetings.
An extraordinary general meeting of Mundesley Parish Council was held on October 2 to discuss the district council's recommendations, which were not accepted.
NNDC's standards committee met the following day and a council spokesman said: 'The standards committee expressed its concern and disappointment that the parish council had decided not to accept the recommendations.
'The standards regime relating to parish councils does not allow the district council to enforce the implementation of sanctions against parish councils.'
