Attended Full Council on Tuesday 26th November .

Two interesting items were discussed and voted on, namely the local council tax support scheme – where it was proposed that any reduction from Central Government regarding this be passed on to Local Town and Parish Councils, lots of information forthcoming on the night which tended to shroud the issue.

Jayne and myself voted against any reduction in the grant to Town and Parish Councils as the grant from Central Government had not been reduced.  The local plan was put up for adoption, an amendment was tabled which was that a development at Horsley Cross should be included.  The amendment was carried , which then became the substantive motion.  Jayne and myself voted for both as we think that after all the consultations the local plan representatives a good deal for Brightlingsea.
