Two Pembroke Dock county councillors have complaints about them under investigation by the Public Services Ombudsman.

The Public Services Ombudsman said that it is “currently investigating” councillors Joshua Beynon and Paul Dowson for alleged breaches of Pembrokeshire County Council’s code of conduct.

A spokesperson for the council said that any formal complaints in relation to the conduct of individual councillors are dealt with under the Local Government Act 200 standards regime and are referred to the Public Services Ombudsman for Wales in the first instance.

“We are unable to comment on individual cases,” said a PCC?spokesperson.

“Formal complaints made about a Councillor allegedly breaching the Code of Conduct should be sent to the Public Services Ombudsman for Wales.

“A copy should also be forwarded to the Monitoring Officer of Pembrokeshire County Council,” they added.

On the matter, Clr. Beynon said: “These malicious allegations follow a long campaign of harassment against me which appears to be motivated by prejudice.

“This matter is now in the hands of my lawyers and I am not in a position to provide further comment.”

Clr. Dowson commented: “There are three complaints outstanding. They have been for over a year now.”

He added that the complaints were made by “individuals who have a personal agenda because I disagree with their politics.”
