TDC Conservative Group statement re EKO Planning Application and Public Enquiry

Questions have been raised about the participation of the Chief Executive and Leader of Thanet District Council in EKOLLP's decision to use a public enquiry to resolve the planning issue of the Eurokent site.

Conservative Group Leader, Cllr Bob Bayford said: “When serious questions are raised about the probity of action by the most senior council officer and the Leader, it is usual practice to appoint an external investigator to ascertain if there is a case to answer. This is a neutral action, designed to protect the reputations of all concerned, and maintain the mutual confidence and trust required between executive, politicians and public.

“The Conservative Group at Thanet District Council looks forward to hearing of the appointment of an independent investigator in line with best practice for public authorities.”
