After just one term in office Judy Dalton of Anston and Woodsetts Ward will step down as a Councillor.
Whether you regard this as retirement or resignation it comes against a background of strong criticism for her past roles in Rotherham Council’s failure to protect children and failure to keep criminal elements from working in Rotherham’s taxi trade.
“Louise Casey’s report uncovered serious weaknesses in the council’s taxi licensing where sufficient steps to ensure only fit and proper persons are permitted to hold taxi licenses have not been, and are not being undertaken.
There can be no confidence in the council’s Licensing Committee.
I am thus minded that the commissioners will take control of all the council’s licensing functions.” Eric Pickles
