Congratulations to all who wrote supporting Cllr Leo Walters and condemning RBWM for its anti-greenbelt policies.
In "The Times" of 22nd February we saw that I see RBWM leader Cllr Dudley is to become a Director of "Homes England".
The Times article, and my further comments, can be read at the following Holyport Residents Association (HRA) website.
I noted a great letter on 9th February from Ken Elvin the Leader of Bray Parish Council (BPC), where he asked the RBWM Councillors who are also BPC Councillors to explain why they no longer support the Conservative Manifesto upon which they were elected as RBWM Councillors. In electing them as BPC Councillors, residents perhaps had in mind the belief that these persons would support Green Belt as their Manifesto declares.
I run a website for the HRA and have placed my views there, with a poll asking whether residents support the concept that, other than Cllr Walters, all RBWM Councillors who are also BPC Councillors should resign from BPC - the reason being that their RBWM Green Belt views are incompatible with the established policy of BPC as expressed in its Neighbourhood Development Plan.
At the time of writing 22 people have responded to a poll on the Holyport Residents Association website agreeing that they should resign, and no-one has voted that they should stay.
I note that the only joint RBWM and BPC Councillor who voted in a BPC meeting one year ago to adopt the BPC Neighbourhood Plan has recently resigned from BPC. The other BPC RBWM Councillors did not attend the meeting.
I think it deplorable that due to being a RBWM Councillor, a BPC Councillor cannot take full part in BPC business where the BPC policy differs from the RBWM policy.
I therefore recommend that no-one ever again votes an RBWM Councillor onto a Parish Council.
