Oh yes its true Wink But dont forget investigation does not mean guilty. The P+C do not wish to publish other investigations, i wonder why. The P+C will need a centre page when the results come in.
What some one forgot to see was that it will be the key to the door to reveal exactly who has been naughty.
this may give you a clue,

John Pitt

Chief monitoring officer

The standards board

WMDC

Ref: none declaration of interest

 
Dear Mr Pitt

After being contacted by the press today I have been compelled to write to you as a situation has been brought to my attention that a Cllr has been reported to the standards board. There crime appears to be talking to 2 different supermarkets to offer as much help as is allowed to be offered for the sake of the town as an elected member.

I am sure I do not need to remind you of the volatile politics in Featherstone nor the often one sided complaints given. I believe it is time for this to be ended.

I would therefore ask that you consider concerns that appear to be missing. Cllr Margaret Isherwood is a town council member and a WMDC planning committee member. According to a Labour party run web site Cllr Isherwood and proposed labour candidate Richard Taylor have both talked with the owners of the property known as Modetex where the super market is planned. A result of this appears to have manifested in the form of a slanderous letter that has now been acted on by a solicitor who is now perusing the case. Should Cllr Isherwood not declare an interest in this Thursday planning meeting or be excluded pending investigation?

Yet again it would appear that only Independent Cllrs are regularly accused by the Featherstone labour party.

In my view there are always to sides to the story and the way I see things though I could be wrong, but wont believe it until some hard evidence come to light.
Council Bickerton has in fact been doing what everyone wanted and is trying to get a supermarket in Featherstone. Netto have shown interest so he has done what he can to help them achieve their goal and give the people what they want.
The rest of the letter seem typical business to me.
Netto want to build a supermarket Mr and Mrs green have the land.
Number 5 comes up for sale, Netto see that this property would benefit them for access to the land if they should acquire the land from the Green's. The Green's also see the property as a ideal opportunity, they would be in a much better bargaining position if they were to own number 5. Number 5 was sold to the highest bidder Netto. The Greens aren't happy about this has they want to sell the land to Lidl (most likely the highest bidder for the land) As number 5 is owned by Netto and this could cause problems for access to the land by Lidl The Green's could loose out.
Paragraph 5 says a lot to me. The Green's are saying if consent isn't given to Lidl then Featherstone won't get a supermarket. They will not enter into discussions with Netto, and will hold onto the land for residential development. Which says to me they have no intention of selling to Netto or any supermarket chain that shows interest.
So I ask who is forcing who here, because to me it looks like the Green's are trying to force planning into passing Lidl's plans and rejecting Netto's.

At last some one has actually read the facts Grin

The reason the greens are taking a stand, is because roy bickerton tried to bully them into selling to netto.

yetion1, if you know something, why don't you just tell us.

As I am not politically biased, I see the letter the same way as forkhandles, that they will now not negociate with Netto because of the bullying. In my opinion, no one can force planning into doing anything. At the end of the day, it looks like we are getting a supermarket, that's all that matters.
