CLLR ROBERT STANDLEY - DECLARATIONS
WHY THE HOLD UP? - Councillor Robert Standley the Leader of Wealden District Council and has been for some time. We know then that Bob, as he prefers to be called will be looking for ways of providing low cost, low carbon housing for his younger constituents. We are though a little confused as to why with the sums of money the tax payer is lavishing on his officers, why it is taking so long.
Most young people will know that there is a serious lack of affordable housing in Sussex. This has everything to do with officers not being proactive and it appears, doing what they can to preserve the status quo - perhaps with the members backing the officers up as to their reluctance, to hang onto their seats.
One way of making sure that there are no hidden agendas is for declarations as to possible conflicts of interest to be cross referenced with planning applications with a computer program.
To avoid any possibility for confusion, council members should register their membership of influential societies such as the Masons and inclusion in Quangos, where conflicts of interest are sure to crop up. The reason for this is that many masonic lodges are comprised of builders and building related trades persons.
We have no idea if Mr Standley is a Mason, or how many of the present members are Masons, but we know that in the past both officers and councillors have included Masons in their ranks.
