Every TDC councillor serving … Read more

Michael Talbot, to establish the cost to the council. Cllr. Geoff Smith says, “Fly tipping must be costing TDC a fortune and that means our council tax is being spent clearing up someone else’s mess. It is costly, … Read more
Local Labour councillors have reacted angrily to the news that a councillor on Tendring District Council has received the equivalent of £1293.25 per minute for sitting in the public gallery and watching a meeting of a council committee. Under the rules governing councillors’ attendance at meetings a councillor is required to attend a meeting at least once every six months but, at present, this can simply be as an observer. Conservative councillor, Andrew Massey, has complied with this requirement by sitting in the public gallery as an observer of a Local Council Tax Committee meeting which began at 10AM on … Read more
