Bexhill-on-Sea Town Council Addresses Growing Concerns Over Inappropriate Behaviour

At last night's meeting, a councillor made inappropriate comments and unsubstantiated allegations towards a staff member. Under the circumstances, for the well-being of everyone involved, we had no alternative but to close the meeting. Bexhill-on-Sea Town Council is an active participant in the National Association of Local Councils' Civility and Respect initiative, which advocates for the highest standards of behaviour from councillors at all times.

While the councillor has privately apologized and retracted their comments, we wish to emphasize that we do not endorse any allegations made about staff and will not tolerate any form of inappropriate behaviour from our councillors.

We are taking immediate action by working closely with the concerned councillor to ensure they receive appropriate support and training to understand the responsibility of their position as an elected representative of the town. Bexhill-on-Sea Town Council is committed to fostering an environment that promotes respect, civility, and collaboration.

We want to reassure our community that we are actively addressing this incident to prevent its recurrence. Bexhill-on-Sea Town Council will use its best endeavours to uphold the values of Civility and Respect and to ensure that all council members adhere to these principles.
