WTC Meeting Wednesday 11th July 2018 Part I

Disclaimer: These observations are not the ‘official’ minutes of the meeting, these are supplied by Whittlesey Town Council, normally (1) month following the meeting and can be viewed on their website.
Agenda to this meeting was published on this site – 08th July
Present Councillors: Dorling, Mayor Windle, Miscandlon, Mason, Boden, Mrs Laws
+ County Councillor Connor.
Police Matters: Vistors on a boat were subjected to vandalism whist moored at the Manor/Bower which councillors were concerned about – the effects on tourism in our area.
Public Forum: Peter Baxter gave a short presentation on why a ‘Strategic Environmental Assessment’ has not been viewed or seen in the respect of the Kings Dyke Crossing.
he made it clear that he was NOT against a Bridge – but that all the correct procedures had taken place. Cllr Boden commented that not all planning applications of this type needed at SEA – but thanked Peter Baxter for highlighting his concerns – further investigations and answers required.

RG I asked our County Councillors present why after speaking about it last month, the lack of ‘Paint’ on all our zebra crossings had still not come about.
I then spoke on the subject of Councillors attendances – which is given below – that in the case of Cllr Garratt he had missed 8 consecutive full council meetings, many without any explanation – under The Local Government Act of 1972 if a Councillor misses 6 months of meeting he ceases to be a member of the authority – however in Cllr Garratts case he has attended ‘other’ meetings within the time frame. I said that by his extremely poor attendance, was an insult to the (his) electorate, a travesty to the Council and poor for democracy.
