The most fundamental aspect of being an ERYC Ward Councillor is to ensure that you represent residents at County Hall.
Opposite Is True
Unfortunately in the past week or so I have witnessed the opposite.
- Local Councillors Do Not Support Peacock Motion – I was shocked when Pocklington Provincial Conservative Ward Councillors Kay West and Claude Mole did not back a motion for Dominic Peacock to step down. Not one resident has told me they want Peacock to remain. I supported the motion.
- Pocklington Provincial Planning Shame – Sadly, not only did Pocklington Provincial Conservative Ward Councillors Kay West and Claude Mole fail to speak at the meeting they never even attended. I attended, and in support of residents, spoke against the application. The failure of my two fellow Ward Councillors to speak out against the application gave the false impression that only a third of residents were against the application. In truth, most residents are against all future major planning applications for Pocklington Provincial until such time as ERYC carry out a full review into the infrastructure in Pocklington Provincial.
I would like to request that Councillor Mole and Councillor West support the residents of Pocklington Provincial by speaking against all major planning applications, and those local residents oppose, until ERYC carry out a full review into the infrastructure in Pocklington Provincial.
Sutton Upon Derwent Parish Council
Over recent years Sutton Upon Derwent Parish Council feel their objections against planning applications have failed to be adequately supported by Councillor Mole and Councillor West.
Sutton Upon Derwent Parish Council Chair, Liz Rogers says:
”As representatives of our community we are looking to all of our Ward councillors to support us in our long-standing and careful considered responses to planning applications in our Parish.”
