Minutes:

The minutes of the meeting held on 24 August 2021 were submitted, approved and signed by the Chairman with the addition of the following paragraph being added to minute 24 – Sandbanks, Coast Road, Littlestone.

 

“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.”
