The Conservative group at South Cambs District Council have successfully called for an extraordinary council meeting to discuss a recent damning report from the council’s external auditors.
Cllr Heather Williams, Leader of the Conservative Group at South Cambs outlined why it is needed: “Given the deadline that has been set by the external auditors and the exceptional position the District Council finds itself in, I believe residents would rightly wonder what their elected representatives were doing if we didn’t meet to discuss the external auditors’ report. It is only right that all Councillors are given the opportunity to hear an explanation, be updated and question the Lib Dem administration on the matter. An update could be given privately but we believe that this should be in public view for full openness and transparency, hence the call for a public meeting."
An extraordinary council meeting will now be held on Monday 18th October, where we will find out if the deadline has been met and what lies next for Lib Dem-run South Cambs District Council.
