Rochford District Council – How are decisions made?

CEO Paul Warren has said  “I’m not convinced the public are that interested in the processes of the Council – what they’re interested in is outcomes!!” 

There was no surprise when every seat on the powerful Executive Board was reserved for a Conservative.

I attended a “training session” run by Paul Warren (CEO of RDC) who advised Members how this was going to work and what non Executive Board Members could not do.

I received a copy e-mail from a Conservative Member who did not wish the Executive Board Meetings moved from the evening to the afternoon.

The Liberal Democrats on RDC have said this on their web site:

“We were also promised that things would be kept democratic. So the meetings of the Cabinet would be held in the evening , meaning:

All councillors could attend if they wanted to (maybe to take part, maybe just to watch). Members of the public who work could come and watch.”
