Sidmouth councillors told to declare interests and other news
Town councillors were told that Save Our Sidmouth (SOS) is a lobbying group and should be registered as an interest. Read this and more.
LOBBY GROUP: Town councillors were told that Save Our Sidmouth (SOS) is a lobbying group and should be registered as an interest like any other when they met on Monday.
They heard events such as last month’s rally on Knowle could prejudice their opinions before discussions take place.
Town clerk Christopher Holland said he had to read in the Sidmouth Herald that the SOS organised march was attended by councillors Ian Barlow, Mary Jolly and Dawn Manley.
Cllr Barlow said: “I went to the march to listen to people but I should have said I did so. I always try to hear both sides before I make my mind up.”
Mr Holland added that it was up to councillors to declare their interests and to use their own judgements where this would be necessary.
