Planning Committee member appointments

After lengthy debate today Broads Authority members decided to wait until the next Authority meeting in September to consider the reappointment of Lana Hempsall to the Planning Committee.

Members discussed reappointing Mrs Hempsall, who had been Vice Chairman of the Planning Committee, following concerns around social media posts and telephone and email discussions between Mrs Hempsall and various officers on planning matters.

They asked the Solicitor and Monitoring Officer to supply the full information relating to the posts and conversations so they could reach an informed decision about the appointment when they next meet on 30 September.
