A CODE of conduct may be put together for visiting speakers at council meetings after a guest allegedly swore at planning board members.
The chair of Barnsley Council’s planning committee, Coun Ken Richardson, said he would look at putting together measures after Coun Sarah Tattersall said she heard a resident in attendance use two swear words at Tuesday’s meeting.
Coun Tattersall added: “They used two swear words beginning with ‘F’ and ‘B’ and it has really upset me.”
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
