I live in Carl Thomson’s ward – he doesn’t represent my views (or thoe sof many neighbours) neither does Cllr Bittlestone. There is a history of not declaring interest on matters where churches are concerned. One current member of the Executive is married to an elder at Coign Church – she did decalre this, others are not so open. Coign Church use the HG Wells center – I wonder if they pay a proper commercial rent or if they get a friends discount because of their links with the council????
Get Surrey held a poll on the free parking for churches last year 70+% voted against it…the council are out of touch and commercially unaware. Little wonder we have huge debts.
My complaint to the Overview and Scrutiny Committee has been ignored for weeks and the minutes of the council meeting where they voted on the parking are still not available on the website. What are they hiding?
