They had a right to know

Pamela Howard of West Hill (Opinion, January 10) says regarding a dispute with Ottery St Mary Town Council (OSMTC) that “I knowingly broke the code of conduct”.

I most certainly did not.

What I did, was to inform district councillor Claire Wright that OSMTC was to meet Persimmon Homes about a planning proposal in West Hill – something that Cllr Wright as the district councillor for West Hill, and the people of West Hill, were perfectly entitled to know. That was the right thing to do.

Pamela Howard also says that I should stop blowing my own trumpet, and join the orchestra.

I like to think that for more than 20 years I have been playing hard for the orchestra of the people of the Ottery parish.
