A presentation was also received from Mark Westall regarding TDC looking into a potential initiative to launch an online Tendring lottery, using an external lottery manager, to help fund discretionary support to local voluntary and community sector and to enable good causes to raise funds directly.

Councillor G Steady
Attended Standards Committee on 27th September, which was an interesting meeting, in as much as the two cases before us were concerning Councillors who each had a conviction. We made recommendations for extra training concerning the Council Code of Conduct and to consider their position regarding giving a service to their constituents.

On the 25th we discussed the Long Term Financial Sustainability Plan – 10 Year forecast, corporate budget for the first ¼, performance report for the first ¼ and office rationalisation. On the 16th we discussed Assets – acquisition and disposal.
