Councillor Patrick Kadewere, who represents Huntingdon North, has reached the end of his tether after a town council planning meeting on Thursday (October 23), where he was due to raise issues about a housing development, was postponed due to a lack of numbers. He said that at a meeting on September 11, only seven of the 19 councillors turned up and will be raising the issue at the next full council meeting tomorrow (Thursday). So far in 2014, there have been three full council meetings where fewer than 10 councillors have turned up - with eight at the June 26 and the January 23 meeting and nine at the April 24 meeting. Only mayor Councillor Bill Hensley and Councillor Ann Beevor have unblemished records at full council this year, with Councillor Sid Akthar the worst attendee, only turning up at one meeting. Councillors Stephen Cawley, Alan Cole and Raj Subhan have attended only two full council meetings this year. Cllr Kadewere, who has missed one full council meeting, said: Its really becoming a problem now where they can only get seven people across 19. Its not good at all. I wanted to raise the issue of buses on Buttsgrove Way as they cannot pass safely on the corner but I couldnt as the meeting was cancelled. I dont know why they dont turn up, some dont even send their apologies. Its just they dont bother. They are meant to be there to contribute, discuss issues and vote. Its not just the full council, its the panels and committees as well. Its very important that people turn up to those as thats where most of the decisions are made. Then they are not able to feed back the information to the communities they serve, thats the worry I have got. I know they volunteer their time, but when they are voted in, they have got to be serious about it and attend meetings, not to do it when they choose. Its high time they realise their responsibility, they dont just represent their party, but the community that voted them in. Even when there are not elections, we still need to do it. Philip Peacock, Huntingdon town clerk, said: We had to cancel one meeting because of the number of apologies coming in, to attend district council meetings, illness or family illness. The meeting was moved to November 3.
