4Rutland was formed as a response to concerns about risks posed by local Councillors who may put party political allegiance before the needs of people who live and work in Rutland.
There is a concern that Full Council Meetings on major issues are brief, raising suspicions that decisions may be pre-determined. The Scrutiny process is minimal. Well qualified Councillors are side-lined, with little or no influence in debates that could be about spending £Millions of public money. With such a small Council this cannot be good for Rutland and the people we serve in these difficult times.
We three politically Independent Councillors were all elected to the Council to serve the people and not a Party. We have grouped together to build a stronger body to better represent and inform the people of Rutland.
The aim of our group is to challenge decisions being hastily rushed through. The intention is to demand greater detail to ensure decisions are made in the best interests of the electorate. We ask for transparency in order to include the people of Rutland to a greater extent in the democratic process.
We have created this website to:
- Share our thoughts and concerns
- Keep you informed of current issues at the Council
- Provide internet links to a selection of interesting and helpful resources
