Interesting that Cllr. Graham Perks maintains his interest in the Winter Gardens. His appointment as concessionaire there was declared by the County Auditors to be ‘unlawful’ and his subsequent negotiation of a lower rent was ‘a breach of contract’.


I wonder if Cllr Perks will ever repay the £36,000 he owed the Council when he ran the place into the ground?


Quote “This was after Cllr Bacon said the scrutiny committee had rejected an offer to hold an additional meeting after receiving the missing paperwork.”

Perhaps the Cllr would like to share the missing paperwork here too. This would be from the published Paper D, would it?

“The following amended recommendations were agreed for submission to the Executive:
(II) The Executive to defer a decision until after a Members briefing and an additional Executive meeting (and if considered necessary a Scrutiny Committee) then to be arranged to discuss the issue further.”

Hardly a rejection.

The ‘missing paperwork’ regarding this rigged consultation will apparently be published next Monday.

The above moderation removes the context. The quote I give is from the ‘Scrutiny Committee Recommendations’ paper that was, as usual, in front of all Executive members last evening, which Cllr Bacon clearly did not read given his misleading comments to the meeting.
