David Lansdowne has announced that he is stepping down immediately from his role as Chair of the Mylor Parish NDP, a position he has occupied since 2018. He will also resign from Mylor Parish Council. His full resignation statement will follow.
David made his announcement at a meeting of the NDP Steering Group on 15 December. You can read the draft minutes here. Speaking briefly at the start of the meeting he said:
“I am resigning from the Steering Group Chairmanship, the Chairman position on the Planning Committee, and as a Parish Councillor. I will write to the Chair of the Parish Council to advise him of this with an explanation within days.”
During his time as NDP Chair David Lansdowne has provided a vital link between the Steering Group and the Parish Council which commissioned the Plan in 2017. Thanking him, Steering Group member Jonathan Griffin said:
“David has endured an unpleasant six months with a concerted campaign of harassment and exclusion by a small group of fellow councillors. He has had to undergo a series of procedural complaints which would not stand up to any serious scrutiny. It is therefore not surprising that he has decided to resign. He has been an excellent leader, shaping and guiding the team, and has worked tirelessly.”
The Steering Group remains determined to see the Plan through to examination and referendum in May 2021 and is grateful for the community’s support.
