Statement from Independent Members at Cornwall Council
The first day at Cornwall Council has passed with new and old Councillors coming together for the first-time. On the whole, it has been a good day and great to meet so many new people who have common interests.
I have been asked by Independent Members to publish the following statement on proposals for a new administration at Cornwall Council. It is as follows:
“Following the results of the Council elections we have collectively agreed to seek the assistance and co-operation of all political groups at Cornwall Council to form an administration. We will do all we can do to form an alliance of all groups which will ensure at Cornwall Council has an effective administration.
On the Leadership, Chairman and Membership of Committees we are not in a position to comment until we have heard from the other groups.
We accept that these negotiations will take time; we all agree that we as Independents only have the interest of the people of Cornwall to worry about”
I will keep you informed as best I can
