The Extraordinary meeting of Tetbury Town Council will not be held until clarification has been received from various departments within Cotswold District Council and advice from our own legal representative.
Due to various statements being made on Facebook regarding the legal requirements of the S106 monies for the Redevelopment Project, we have sought clarification from a legal representative who attended the meeting in August and have received the following response:
“I have always made it clear that I have a conflict of interest in that I am unable to advise any organisation other than Cotswold District Council.
I have stressed on many occasions that bodies other than Cotswold District Council must seek their own independent legal advice as I am unable to advise them.
I repeat that I have never provided legal advice to any organisation other than Cotswold District Council and when attending the meeting in August this was at the request of the District Councillors who represent Tetbury”.
Once a definitive response regarding the S106 allocation of funds has been received then an Extraordinary meeting of the Council will be held.
