    Pleased to say that further to my motion to Folkestone and Hythe District Council last week on changing the governance system (which was passed, amended by the Conservatives but leaving, I think, the intention intact) there has been feedback from the Council Head of Paid Service Susan Priest outlining how she plans to move forward.

    Millions of people care for relatives, friends and neighbours, often at huge personal cost. They need more than our gratitude; they need our support.

    Carers UK have estimated that over 8 million people are currently caring for someone [1]. That is an increase of nearly 40% on the number of reported carers in 2011. It is likely that 3 in 5 of us will be caring for someone at some point in our lives.

    It is important that all Councillors follow the rules regarding declaring their Pecuniary Interests for the councils they sit on.

    By doing so, it allows the public, councillors and officers to be clear if the decisions they are taking part in are likely to have more impact on them than others in their area. So for example, you would expect a Councillor to leave the room and not speak or vote on a planning appliation next to a property they own or live in for example, as the impact would be potentially disproprtionately felt by them which may impact their view.
