EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

STANDARDS COMMITTEE

 

14TH JUNE 2019

 

APPLICATION FOR DISPENSATION BY COUNCILLOR B CHAPMAN

WHITLAND CIVIC WEEK COMMITTEE

 

An application for dispensation to speak only in relation to matters regarding the Whitland Civic Week Committee has been received from Cllr Barry Chapman of Whitland Town Council.

 

Councillor Chapman has a personal interest in such matters by virtue of paragraph 10(2)(a)(ix)(ee) of the Code of Conduct as he is a member of the committee..

 

This interest is also a prejudicial interest as a member of the public, with full knowledge of the facts, would reasonably regard that interest as so significant as to prejudice the Councillor’s judgement of the public interest.

 

The application is submitted on 4 grounds specified in the Standards Committees (Grant of Dispensation)(Wales) Regulations 2001 namely;

 

(d) no damage to public confidence

(f)participation justified due to the member’s special expertise

(h) interest relates to a voluntary organisation (limited to speaking only)

 

The committee organises the annual carnival in Whitland and organises other events throughout the year to help pay for the ongoing maintenance of Parc Dr Owen, a recreational field in the town which is used by the local bowling club and football and rugby teams.

 

Occasionally the committee makes applications to the Town Council for financial assistance in putting on the carnival and other events. Cllr Chapman would like to be able to speak at any town council meeting at which such applications are discussed.

 

Cllr Chapman was granted a dispensation in respect of this interest to speak only on the 15th June 2018.

 

If the committee is minded to grant the application, it has an absolute discretion as to duration, it may grant it until the end of the Councillor’s term of office, or some other date, such as the date of a future meeting of this committee.
