Concerns have been raised that charges for emergency pendant users were introduced without consultation.

The agenda for the December 16 meeting also includes a plea for the introduction of conces-sionary swimming sessions for seniors at Leisure East Devon pools.

Senior Council members are also proposing improvements to the existing bus pass scheme.
