Motion at today’s EDDC full council meeting.
Recall that EDDC council leader voted AGAINST submitting the Sustainability and Transformation Partnership’s plan to the Secretary of State for Health at the meeting of Devon County Council’s Health Scrutiny Committee AGAINST the wishes of his own district council.
Now, that same district council, whose Tory members absolved him of blame for this act are making a TOKEN fuss about its consequences!
“Motion – The effects on Rural Communities of the Sustainability Transformation Partnership (STP) actions in East Devon
“To ask the Leader of East Devon District Council to request Sarah Wollaston, Chair of the Parliamentary Health Select Committee, to investigate the effects on Rural Communities of the STP actions and to test if Rural Proofing Policies have been correctly applied to these decisions in order to protect these communities”.
