PRESS RELEASE WEDNESDAY 21ST OCTOBER 2020

Honiton Town Council wishes to address the current misperceptions within the community. The Council is aware that there is currently a petition requesting that the current Councillors resign. Honiton Council accepts that those who have signed the petition are exercising their democratic rights, but does not agree with the arguments raised within the petition and confirm that Councillors will continue to work for the best interests of this Town, and will not be resigning, The claim brought by Honiton Town Council against Bailey Partnership was based on legal advice received. The decision not to pursue further litigation against Bailey Partnership was made by Full Council at their meeting on Monday, 12th October. Honiton Town Council has always supported Honiton Community Complex (the Beehive). The Beehive building is there, built by the Council and it has been positive for the Town. The funding of the Beehive is a complex issue, but one which Honiton Town Council is endeavoring to resolve. Honiton Town Council is working on projects for the benefit of Honiton. Honiton Town Council acknowledges there have been problems related to staffing, but we anticipate many of those problems will be resolved in the next few months. Actions were further delayed for a variety of reasons, mainly Covid-19, but we are now moving ahead at speed to resolve these issues. At all times should any person have any queries or wish to discuss in detail any action taken by Honiton Town Council they should not hesitate to contact either the Deputy Town Clerk or any one of the Town Councillors, whose contact details can be found at www.honiton.gov.uk
