Meeting Postponed

Shaftesbury Town Council postponed Tuesday night’s Extraordinary Full Council to consider a Motion of No Confidence in Cllr Karen Tippins. A communication was received late on the morning of the meeting raising a number of issues. In order to give them due consideration it was decided by the Mayor, Councillor Tim Cook, with advice from the Clerk, Claire Commons, to postpone the meeting to a later date. The Mayor said:

“The Motion of No Confidence is a serious matter that requires serious debate. It is unfortunate to receive communication so late in the day but it is right that we give it due consideration before debating the Motion. That means we had to postpone the meeting.”
