Statement from TDC Conservative Group re the events at the Standards Committee meeting held on 21 November
The Conservative Group at Thanet District Council wish formally to record their thanks to the departing independent members of the Standards Committee for all their hard work on the Council’s behalf.
Cllr Bob Bayford said: “Theirs was never likely to be an easy task, but has in recent times been a truly testing experience.”
The Group would also like to thank the independent members for their timely attempt to make councillors aware of the fragility of their reputation with the public.
Cllr Bayford added: “We accepted the report’s main conclusions on Thursday and we repudiate the torrent of criticism directed at the report and its authors during Thursday’s Standards Committee meeting.”
