Dear Parish Clerk
As the Council’s Proper Officer of some year’s standing you should have witnessed the exchanges between Councillors at last week’s meeting about land owned or not owned by Hemingbrough Parish Council with mounting disquiet.
Could you advise me if the Council legally owns the land referred to as ‘Granny Darley’s Green’ in the Parish Council grant application to the ‘Big Lottery Fund’, completed by a currently serving Councillor, that resulted in an award of £10,000 to the Council, please?
I do not need you tell me that the land is registered as a Village Green. This is not a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act.
I think it is reasonable for me to believe that you know this fact so your willingness to answer my question cannot need a debate by Councillors.
