Many will be aware that there will be a new North Yorkshire Unitary Authority. It will cover the area currently administered by North Yorkshire County Council and the seven Districts/Boroughs will be abolished.
Leader of SBC, Cllr Steve Siddons, aka Major
One of these Boroughs is Scarborough Borough Council (SBC). In an interview with the BBC on Thursday evening, the Leader of SBC Councillor Steve Siddons (Labour), when asked about the Local Government Reorganisation (LGR) babbled:
“It’s … it’s not really done in …in with the way the Government asked it to be done”.
If you have evidence to support this, Steve, you MUST take a Judicial Review against the Secretary of State, as your comments imply that the legal process has not been followed.
But if you do not pursue a Judicial Review I would suggest that you MUST publish a public apology to residents and the Minister for your false statement.
Which is it to be, our Steve?
