Motion to Council

 

It will be moved by Councillor Cosima Towneley and seconded by Councillor John Harbour that:

 

I firmly believe there is a time and place when recognition of eminent service given to the Borough from Council colleagues should be recognised.  The retirement of Andrew Tatchell as a Councillor is one such occasion and I propose that in accordance with Section 249 (1) of the Local Government Act 1972 the Mayor and Councillors assembled here resolve to admit Andrew Tatchell as an Honorary Alderman for his tenacity, longevity and dedication to the Borough of Burnley and that his name shall be enrolled on the Honorary Alderman’s Roll and on a certificate conferring upon him the title of Honorary Alderman of the Borough of Burnley.  His retirement is indeed a sad loss to the Borough and the Council Chamber.
