I consider your email response dated 16 September 2014 about Meeting Papers to be unreasonable.
Hemingbrough Parish Council still picks, chooses and ignores whatever rules and regulations it wants to thwart members of the public wanting to learn about council events
I have no concerns about when you schedule discussions of the new rules and what you must do to become compliant other than I knew about the new rules long before they were approved by Parliament on 6 August 2014 and so should you, so you could have reasonably scheduled discussions for your August or September meeting instead of waiting for me to request you get on with it.
As a bona fide member of the press I am entitled to a copy of the meeting briefing notes now. The Department for Communities and Local Government advises you that if Standing Orders are not fully in line with the new rules and expectations in the short term you “simply waive the relevant provisions of those old Standing orders which could be taken to inhibit the new rules, and then take steps to update formally “the Standing orders. I would consider any other action, including your suggestion of scheduling a debate in October to be unreasonable.
I trust you will reasonably provide me with a copy the briefing papers before the meeting, conduct the Planning session with the formality dictated by Local Council protocols and resolve the matter of the Councillors who are Members of the independent Hagg Lane Green being influenced by that Group during discussions and votes as the Nolan principles require.
Note: ‘Nolan Principles’ require under the Principle of Integrity Councillors “should not place themselves under any financial or other obligation to outside individuals or organisations that might seek to influence them in the performance of their official duties.”
