Sidlesham parish council approve conciliation costs

Sidlesham Parish Council voted to approve a £300 conciliation session with SALC after recommendation to do so by the Standards Board.

After a complaint by Cllr Pound regarding the behaviour of chairman Adrian Harland and Cllr Tricia Tull, who is also the district councillor for the award, the Standards Board suggested the three have a conciliation session to sort out their differences.

The council agreed to this at the council meeting on August 15, but it will cost the parish more than £300 for the meeting, travel expenses and VAT.

Cllr Tull and Cllr Pound were absent from the meeting but the chairmen abstained from the vote of whether to approve the costs.
