To set the scene, Whitby Town Council has recently been critical of Scarborough Borough Council (SBC) and some of its councilors and officers. I’m not going to go into to much detail of this other than to say evidence of this is available on our website.
In my opinion, as is always the case with Scarborough Borough Council, rather than looking at the matter at hand, and dealing with it if necessary.
They instead adopt one of several approaches to shoot down anyone who dares to be critical of them :
So my question would be, what is the use of a council who will not be criticised ? Scarborough Borough Council appear to spend time and money on the defense of justified criticism rather than actually acting to correct what it is they are being criticised of.
You may well ask, is the criticism of Scarborough Borough Council justified.
Well in defense of Whitby Town Council, I believe they are well and trully justified to be critical of SBC and in particular Councilor Cokerill.
I have witnessed Councilor Cockerill’s rude and unacceptable emails to Jackie Greaves of Whitby Angling Supplies.
Jackie dared to ask why Council actions had effected her business at a very busy time of the year for her. His rude, dismissive and abrupt tone of reply was unjustified.
Councillor Cockerill is supposed to be working with the people of Whitby rather than against them.
There are many more examples I could give of Councolor Cockeril’s behavior. I may save them for a later date.
So with the scene now set, here is Tom Brodricks letter to Scarborough Borough Council about Nolans Principles.
Dear Mr Kitson
Since when did SBC and the majority of SBC’s elected councillors abide by Nolan’s Principles?
The principles are how you should behave when dealing with members of the public.
In my opinion your behavior falls way short of Nolan’s Principles.
In my opinion the behavior of SBC towards WTC falls way short of Nolan’s Principles.
I’ve yet to find anyone who has received an actual reply from correspondence to your Chief Exec Jim Dillon!
Cllrs Mike Ward & Ian Havelock have yet to receive a single reply from Jim Dillon.
That’s hardly someone who abides by Nolan’s Principles.
Practice what you preach Mr Kitson.
