Statement from Cllrs Daymond, Doyle, Jordan, Lawson, Lewis and Pyatt
Wednesday, 22 September 2021
The market strategy group within Downham Market Town Council is a non decision making group bound by standing orders. All decisions and actions relating to the market are discussed and voted on by the whole Council within a Full Council meeting and need a majority vote to be passed.
We therefore wish to publicly state that we wish to distance ourselves from decisions made on 17 September 2021 made by three Councillors representing the market strategy group and who alone revoked the licences of two market traders.
The decision was made in good faith on advice from our Solicitor and is subject to an appeal
