Parish Council Confirm Kay West Incompetence

In Councillor Kay West – Incompetent I explain how Mathew Buckley ERYC Head of Legal and Democratic Services suggested I remove reference to the incompetence of Conservative Councillor Kay West. We now know why.

I stated that Sutton Upon Derwent Parish Councillors were informed quite categorically by Conservative Councillor Kay West:

  • A Planning Officer does not take any comments into account when making a recommendation.
  • Only the committee listens to objections.
  • An application will automatically go to committee if objections are received.

Today I received a copy of the Sutton Upon Derwent Parish Council Meeting draft minutes which confirms my previous statement by stating:

Parish Councillors were informed quite categorically that:

a Planning Officer does not take any comments into account when making a recommendation

 Only the committee listens to objections. The recommendation is based on materials and the law. 

An application will automatically go committee if objections are received’

I believe the time has come for Councillor West to do the decent thing. Apologise to Sutton Upon Derwent Parish Council and request planning training.

Currently she is bringing ERYC Planning into further disrepute at a time when public confidence is already at an all time low in ERYC Planning.

Why do Conservatives struggle to apologise?
