Councillor Treloar put to the council that Councillor Wimble was not fit to vote on the application 21/0747/FH because he only reluctantly declared a possible interest in the application when pressed by Councillor Jackie Meade once the application was open for discussion – and because he arrived to committee with a lengthy written statement in support of the application, which raises concerns about pre-determination. Councillor Treloar asked for these concerns to be minuted.
