I have similar issues as Ossy Lass. Our Clerk would perceive any communication sent by a Parish Councillor , naming themselves as Parish Councillor although clearly expressing that it's not the view of the PC but their own, as serious breach of the Code of Conduct . Most of us are currently
too afraid to speak, write , comment on the village FB as individuals without it being seen as a breach of conduct which is mostly supported by the Chair too . All communication has to go through the clerk in the first instance, and where a councillor acts an individual, should the letter be passed to the clerk for example by a County or Borough Councillor the clerk will not support or involve the PC in any action. With all that said , other than approaching a MO is there anywhere else ( new ) councillors get help ?
