Two interesting comments following the EDP article:

  • James Knight  5 hours ago

    Peter Dixon and Jacquie Burgess both actively canvassed other members of the Authority to block any attempt to reinstate Cllr Hempsall on the planning committee, in breach of the Authority's standing orders and code of conduct. Peter Dixon has also admitted that he authorised the altering of the wording of the Duty to Cooperate in direct response to Vic Thomson's proposal that the Authority should comply with its own rules. Peter Dixon has also said that if Cllr Hempsall agrees not to criticise the Authority for 6 months then he might re-consider her for membership of the planning committee

    It is worse than a shambles.
    The presence of each district council member at least gives a modicum of elected, democratic, responsibility and local knowledge.
    This change is blatantly anti democratic, draconian and possibly unlawful. The CEO now has the power to pick and choose which councillors he will accept (the pliable ones) and which he will ignore (those who think for themselves). This is a step too far!
    Mr. Thomson must win his case
