Letter to Councillors re. decision to be made (at Full Council, 23rd July) on new rules for public speaking

Leave a comment

SOS supporters wanting to contact their councillors with their own view, should do so before the Full Council meeting on 23rd July. The meeting at 6.30pm at Knowle, is open to the public.

SOS wishes to thank Graham Cooper for this copy of his letter already sent to all Sidmouth Councillors, and published here for your information.

Dear Councillors,

I do hope you will all reject the above anti-democratic motion when it comes to the next full EDDC council meeting. Please on behalf of your constituents demonstrate the courage and integrity of Cllr Hughes and Cllr Troman by voting against restrictions. Cllr Bloxham’s motion is flawed and damaging to the reputation of the EDDC. It is not the public who are wasting time – see Cllr Wright report on Gittisham DMC meeting below.
Kind Regards
Graham Cooper

There was just 15 minutes of public speaking. I spoke as Devon County Councillor for the ward and Cllr Mike Allen spoke as adjacent ward member. Cllr Susie Bond spoke as ward member.
The committee debate still took around an hour.
