Also covered were the conflicts of interest in relation to a lobby group, which is also part of the council.

I was interviewed by Matt Woodley just after 7am.  Cllr Graham Brown was also on live at around 8.10 and EDDC Leader, Paul Diviani gave an interview last night to journalist, Sophie Pierce, who attended the scrutiny meeting. 

Also on the programme were interviews with Tony Green, a Sidmouth resident who was co-author of a report (outlined in a blog earlier this week) that was submitted to last night’s scrutiny committee.  Chair of Sidmouth Chamber of Commerce, Steven Kendall-Torry, argued that the forum should be disbanded and that the forum had access to EDDC that the Sidmouth Chamber of Commerce never enjoyed.
