• Distribution list for the business forum:  Why the secrecy?

    17th July 2012 | News | Claire
  • The information was blocked last week by the East Devon Business Centre, the EDDC-employed administrators for EDBF. 

    Following my request for the list, there was an exchange of around six emails with the facilities manager during last week.

    I was asked to do the following:

    1. ring Cllr Graham Brown (chair) or Roy Stuart (vice chair)
    2. look at the EDDC website
    3. look at the EDBF website
    4. read through five years worth of minutes to get a feel for attendees

    Finally, in exasperation I referred my query to EDDC monitoring officer, Denise Lyon.  The business forum is after all, funded by public money!

    Ms Lyon looked into my query this morning.  I was sent a distribution list this afternoon.

    The excel document, which is entitled ‘list of East Devon Business Forum contacts updated july 2012’ contains around 80 or so businesses.

    The tab at the bottom reads ‘TMP export selected businesses.’

    Further questions
    1. Why the secrecy?
    2. Do I have the complete list?

    The list I received yesterday is below:  Apologies for the formatting, which looks ok in draft but publishes all apparently randomly!
