Independent inquiry

Independent inquiry into Sean Bell 

The independent inquiry by Susanne Tanner QC supported by law firm Pinsent Masons into conduct of former Council employee Sean Bell has now concluded.

An Open Report outlining the Inquiry Team’s findings and recommendations was presented to full Council on 28 October 2021. The Council has committed to implement all recommendations in the Report.

Andrew Kerr, Chief Executive, has now set out details of the actions being taken to ensure that all the recommendations are progressed.

These are the initial steps and many of the actions, particularly around policy development and training, will be taken forward in conjunction with the wider culture inquiry findings and recommendations, which we expect to receive next month.
