    24th October 2013 | News | Claire
  • Cllr Roger Giles, at last night’s full EDDC council meeting, called the minute and moved an amendment that the paper should be published immediately.

    But a senior officer said that the minute was starred, which meant that amendments were no permitted. Cllr Giles asked why that minute was starred. The senior officer replied that it was starred because the decision was within the remit of the committee. This was in line with the constitution, the officer added.

    A freedom of information request submitted last month from an Exmouth resident asking for the report to be published was also dismissed by EDDC.

    The next audit and governance meeting is on Tuesday 7 November, so the agenda papers should be published shortly.
