A COMPLAINT against two parish councillors is due to be heard by members of North Somerset Council’s standards committee next week.

Councillors Steve Bridges and Mike Williamson’s cases are scheduled to be heard on Monday.

It is alleged that the pair failed to declare a personal and prejudicial interest at meetings of an affordable housing working party established by Winscombe and Sandford Parish Council and parish council meetings where affordable housing in Summerfield was discussed.
