Cllr Terry Wilkins has resigned from Cornwall Council with immediate effect.
This followed action by the Camborne and Redruth Conservative Association who said: “The Camborne and Redruth Conservative Association has conducted a thorough investigation into the allegations surrounding Councillor Terry Wilkins.
“Following these investigations Councillor Wilkins has tendered his resignation which has been accepted.
“We would like to thank Mr Wilkins for his hard work as our county councillor working on behalf of the residents of Illogan and also for his dedication in supporting individuals and various organisations dealing with learning disabilities throughout the county. “
I add my thanks to Cllr Wilkins for his work particularly in support of those with learning disabilities in
The Conservative group have pressed Cornwall Council for greater openness and transparency in its dealings and this must apply to the elected members as well.
As leader of the group I will continue my efforts to ensure that the public whom Cornwall Council serves know what we stand for and what we are doing in their name.
