WHITBY Town Council has claimed it is being ignored by its Scarborough counterparts.

Whitby has been attempting to work with Scarborough Council to resolve the saga of the East Side toilets, as well as other harbour issues.

But it says correspondence with Scarborough has now mysteriously ceased.

Four letters from the Whitby Town Council have gone unanswered, and at Scarborough Council’s Harbour Board meeting last Monday, chairman Cllr Mike Cockerill denied ever receiving them.

Ian Havelock, chairman of Whitby Town Council’s harbour committee said: “We are in this extraordinary situation whereby there are now four letters outstanding.

“These have gone in the strictest channel, through the right protocol, but they are without reply.”

Cllr Havelock was one of the Whitby Town Council members ejected from a meeting of the Whitby Harbour Consultative Group, which is not open to the public.

At the ill-tempered meeting in September, councillors Havelock and Dennis Collins were asked to leave, leading Cllr Ken Graham to depart out of protest.
