I must write with reference to an incident involving Councillor P Burrows and Mr N Spysznyk, as reported in the Herald on January 16 (page 5).To harass any councillor at any level of local government, especially in the manner reported, should be of serious concern and Seaton Town Council should show their solid support for Councillor Burrows.The public expect transparency from all local and national government departments, but incidents like this reinforces the view that planning meetings should be held behind closed doors - so that committee members can express their opinions freely.Norman Loveridge Glynsmead Tatworth
