Studley Parish councillors signed up to civility and respect pledge

Redditch Editorial 24th Aug, 2022   0

STUDLEY Parish councillors signed up to the civility and respect pledge, in line with many other town and parish councils across the country.

Throughout the sector, there are growing concerns about the impact of bullying, harassment, and intimidation on local councils, councillors, clerks and council staff and the effectiveness of local councils.

For this reason the National Association of Local Councils has been working with partner organisations to put civility and respect at the top of the agenda and start a culture change for the local council sector.

Studley Parish Council has signed the pledge to demonstrate it is committed to standing up to poor behaviour across the sector and driving through positive changes that support civil and respectful conduct.

Chairman, Coun Colin Summers said: “Like all teams, we have our ups and downs but on the whole we work well together. As a council we aim to work for the benefit of the Studley community, and I feel that we manage to do this most of the time.

“However, we know we cannot please all of the people all of the time and when this happens we are only too willing to talk about any perceived shortcomings to work towards a better outcome.”
