Decisions being made over development at Exmouth have been controversial, to say the least:
Futures Forum: Regenerating Exmouth seafront >>> Town Council's not-quite public meeting on Tuesday 11th December
At last week's final full District Council meeting, a very heated debate erupted over the 'integrity' of these decisions:
Motion – Financial decisions to be taken in accordance with the Council’s Code of Corporate Governance
The following motion was proposed by Councillor Ben Ingham, seconded by Councillor Megan Armstrong and supported by Councillor Peter Faithfull, Councillor Val Ranger, Councillor Marianne Rixson, Councillor Cathy Gardner, Councillor Roger Giles and Councillor Matt Booth.
“Following the urgent decision taken recently regarding Queens Drive there are concerns that this Council is not taking decisions with objectivity, integrity, honesty and accountability. Does the Council agree that all financial decisions should be taken in accordance with the principles set out in the Council’s Code of Corporate Governance?”
