The sting in the tale....

What's going on (said Marvin)Posted by Paul G Hayward Mon, March 11, 2013 11:37:35

There has been a flurry of activity this morning online following the allegations in the Telegraph that leading EDDC councillor Graham Brown has offered his services to developers offering cash-for-planning access via his connections at EDDC. Story here:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/9921344/Councillors-for-hire-who-give-firms-planning-advice.html

If the story is proved true, and I hope for the sake of democracy it is false, then Cllr Brown is surely in breach of the EDDC Code of Conduct which clearly states:

1.3 When acting in your capacity as a Member or Co-opted Member of the
Council –

(a) you must act solely in the public interest and should never improperly
confer an advantage or disadvantage on any person or act to gain financial or
other material benefits for yourself, your family, a friend or close associate;

Please, please, PLEASE, EDDC - make a stand on this and prove once and for all that government in East Devon is for the people, by the people, of the people... I beg you!

Paul
