A councillor stormed out of a town council meeting in Bridgnorth this week after a row broke out over adopting new legislation.
Councillor Ian Seive-wright called for the full town council meeting on Tuesday night to be ‘abandoned’ before deciding to take no further part in the proceedings.
The row occurred after five councillors refused to pass minutes from an administration and civic meeting on March 27.
Councillors also raised concerns about a new structure for town council meetings which mean they would have four full council meetings per year, one budget and one annual meeting, instead of the standard 12.
Town clerk Anne Wilson said: “Under the new proposals the town council would meet six times a year. The property and grounds, and administration and civic committees would continue to meet once a month, while the planning committee would meet twice a month.
“The council has been working on this since last July through various task and finishing groups.
“All the proposals were previously agreed by the council but now five have decided they have a few concerns about it.”
A meeting is being held on May 1 to resolve the situation.
