Council ‘at a loss’ over approach to work together
PUBLISHED: 16:00 31 July 2016
Sedgemoor District Council has hit out at neighbouring councils after an ‘11th hour’ invite to work together.
The Government has issued a directive for councils to discuss working together but Sedgemoor believes a business plan must be properly considered before any official action can be taken.
This invitation prompted the council to issue a position statement on the matter.
It said: “Earlier in the week, Sedgemoor re-iterated to both councils its long-held position of never turning down an income generation or cost reduction opportunity without first considering a business case.
“This would mean proper, thorough and meaningful dialogue with all three councils, their elected members and our MPs about how to move forward constructively in a timely fashion.
“Sedgemoor is at a loss that it is only at the 11th hour and 59th minute that an invitation has been extended to Sedgemoor.”
The matter will be discussed on Wednesday at Sedgemoor District Council’s full council meeting.
